“To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you’re getting this down.”
Woody Allen in Love and Death
Woody Allen is one of my favourite sources for quotes. Here are some more gems:
Sex without love is an empty experience, but as empty experiences go, it’s one of the best.
If it turns out that there is a God, I don’t think that he’s evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he’s an underachiever.
I’m really a timid person — I was beaten up by Quakers.
Some guy hit my fender, and I told him ‘be fruitful, and multiply.’ But not in those words.
More than any time in history mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other to total extinction. Let us pray that we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
