Woody Allen
“The difference between sex and love is that sex relieves tension and love causes it.”
Woody Allen

Milan Kundera
“He suddenly recalled from Plato's Symposium: People were hermaphrodites until God split then in two, and now all the halves wander the world over seeking one another. Love is the longing for the half of ourselves we have lost.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Azar Nafisi
“You don't read Gatsby, I said, to learn whether adultery is good or bad but to learn about how complicated issues such as adultery and fidelity and marriage are. A great novel heightens your senses and sensitivity to the complexities of life and of individuals, and prevents you from the self-righteousness that sees morality in fixed formulas about good and evil.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran

Roger Ebert
“The Muse visits during the process of creation, not before.”
Roger Ebert

Azar Nafisi
“You get a strange feeling when you're about to leave a place, I told him, like you'll not only miss the people you love but you'll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you'll never be this way ever again.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran
