The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
"I'm quite conflicted in my assessment of this book.

I'll admit, that when I see the 4 star average, contrasted against my own three, I wonder - how much subtext did I miss? What metaphors did I fail to decipher? And dangit, why didn't I pay more a..." Read more of this review »

“The role of a writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say.”
Anaïs Nin

Milan Kundera
“You can't measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.”
Milan Kundera

Milan Kundera
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”
Milan Kundera

Milan Kundera
“The heaviest of burdens crushes us, we sink beneath it, it pins us to the ground. But in love poetry of every age, the woman longs to be weighed down by the man's body.The heaviest of burdens is therefore simultaneously an image of life's most intense fulfillment. The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become. Conversely, the absolute absence of burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant. What then shall we choose? Weight or lightness?”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.”
