Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
There are victories of the soul and spirit. Sometimes, even if you lose, you win.
I believe in superstitions. You don't talk about a child who hasn't been born.
We have to go into the despair and go beyond it, by working and doing for somebody else, by using it for something else.
Look, if I were alone in the world, I would have the right to choose despair, solitude and self-fulfillment. But I am not alone.
