milan kundera quotes

a couple of lines i enjoyed today from “the unbearable lightness of being” by milan kundera translated from the czech by michael henry heim…

“Tereza knew what happens during the moment love is born: the woman cannot resist the voice calling forth her terrified soul; the man cannot resist the woman whose soul thus responds to his voice.” and
“People usually escape from their troubles into the future; they draw an imaginary line across the path of time, a line beyond which their current troubles will cease to exist.”
