“Dogs are our link to paradise.

They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,

where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”

“For Sabina,

living in truth,

lying neither to ourselves nor to others,

was possible only away from the public:

the moment someone keeps an eye on what we do,

we involuntarily make allowances for that eye, and nothing we do is truthful.

Having a public, keeping a public in mind, means living in lies.”

[Milan Kundera – “The Unbearable Lightness Of Being“]
