“The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us, and we keep pretending to believe them.”
Elena Gorokhova, A Mountain of Crumbs

“A bunch of silly men chasing a ball" my mother says "give each one his own ball if they're so desperate to have one”

This is the moment I've always loved most:the anticipation of magic, the expectation of illusion.”
Elena Gorokhova, A Mountain of Crumbs
