Milan Kundera
“We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come.”
Milan Kundera

Milan Kundera
“Why is it that a dog's menstruation made her lighthearted and gay, while her own menstruation amde her squeamish? The answer seems simple to me: dogs were never expelled from Paradise. Karenin knew nothing about the duality of body and soul and had no concept of disgust. That is why Tereza felt so free and easy with him. (And that is why it is so dangerous to turn an animal into a machina animata, a cow into an automaton for production of milk. By so doing, man cuts the thread biding him to paradise and has nothing left to hold or comfort him on his flight through the emptiness of time.)”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

“Umjetnost je ono u što stane Svijet. Roman koji ću čitati sljedećih petnaest dana sasvim će me izmijeniti, preusmjeriti mi život. Film, simfonija, veličanstveni spjev Borisa A. Novaka, o kojemu će tek biti riječi... U to stane svijet. I onda se, ponekad, plače. Nije ta mala Terezina pjesma velika zato što se majka nad njom rasplakala - plače se i dok se guli i reže kapula- ona je velika zato što njoj, mojoj majci, sugerira sav njen život.”
