Milan Kundera
“Perhaps all the questions we ask of love, to measure, test, probe, and save it, have the additional effect of cutting it short. Perhaps the reason we are unable to love is that we yearn to be loved, that is, we demand something (love) from our partner instead of delivering ourselves up to him demand-free and asking for nothing but his company.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Milan Kundera
“Kitsch is the inability to admit that shit exists”
Milan Kundera

Hermann Broch
“The maker of kitsch does not create inferior art, he is not an incompetent or a bungler, he cannot be evaluated by aesthetic standards; rather, he is ethically depraved, a criminal willing radical evil. And since it is radical evil that is manifest here, evil per se, forming the absolute negative pole of every value-system, kitsch will always be evil, not just kitsch in art, but kitsch in every value-system that is not an imitation system.”
Hermann Broch

P.G. Wodehouse
“She looked as if she had been poured into her clothes and had forgotten to say "when". ”
P.G. Wodehouse

Franz Kafka
“May I kiss you then? On this miserable paper? I might as well open the window and kiss the night air.”
Franz Kafka
