Milan Kundera
“Yes, the essence of every love is a child, and it makes no difference at all whether it has ever actually been conceived or born. In the algebra of love a child is the symbol of the magical sum of two beings.”
Milan Kundera, Immortality

Jack Butler
“That's the trouble with innocents. They aren't innocent of doing, just of knowing what they're doing.”
Jack Butler, Jujitsu for Christ
