As cruel as a human being

“A beast can never be as cruel as a human being, so artistically, so picturesquely cruel.” 

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

A moment right at the start

“It’s quite an undertaking to start loving somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment right at the start where you have to jump across an abyss: if you think about it you don’t do it.” 

Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea
