“I've seen men who thought they were brave turn out to be shameful cowards. Other people, who thought they were capable of the utmost self-sacrifice, proved to be hardened egotists. And the opposite, too - cowards doing things which needed toughness and unusual courage..... What does it all boil down to in the end? One must judge a man by what he does, and not by what he thinks he would do. Until a man faces the test, he can deceive himself endlessly.”
Jerzy Andrzejewski, Ashes and Diamonds

“Entonoces comprendí que no me amaba, deseaba solamente mi cuerpo, yo sé que él también lo sabía, aunque trataba de engañarse y me dijera que me amaba, pero al decir eso mentía, porque solamente deseaba mi cuerpo, deseaba el amor, pero no sabía amarme, lo único verdadero en él era el deseo insaciable”
Jerzy Andrzejewski, Las puertas del paraíso

“Każdy człowiek ma jakąś rację, tylko nie każda racja wychodzi na zdrowie.”
Jerzy Andrzejewski, Ashes and Diamonds
