"If, as I believe, the ends of men are many, and not all of them are in principle compatible with each other, then the possibility of conflict-and of tragedy-can never wholly be eliminated from human life, either personal or social. The necessity of choosing between absolute claims is then an inescapable characteristic of the human condition.

"One day you and I will have to have a little talk about this business called love. I still don't understand what it's all about. My guess is that it's just a gigantic hoax, invented to keep people quiet and diverted.

And in speaking of love and offering it as a panacea for every tragedy, they would and betray and kill both body and soul." - Oriana Fallaci
