Because otherwise life would become..

November 23, 2013

Grushnitski: “Mon cher, je hais les hommes pour ne pas les mepriser, car autrement la vie serait une farce trop degoutante.” 

Pechorin: “Mon cher, je meprise les femmes, pour ne pas les aimer, car autrement la vie serait un melodrame trop ridicule.”

Grushnitski: “My friend, I hate people to avoid despising them because otherwise, life would become too disgusting a farce.”

Pechorin: “My friend, I despise women to avoid loving them because otherwise, life would become too ridiculous a melodrama.”

– Mikhail Lermontov, “A Hero of Our Time”
