"Sometimes, long before the wall existed, I wished I was dead, so that I could finally cast off my burden. I always kept quiet a bout this heavy load; a man wouldn't have understood, and the women felt exactly the same way as I did. And so we preferred to chat about clothes, friends and the theatre and laugh, keeping our secret, consuming worry in our eyes. Each of us knew about it, and that's why we never discussed it. That was the price we paid for our ability to love."
My thoughts- How profoundly observant of human nature. Is this true? Has everyone felt this way?
"I was very sorry for them, not because they were dead, but because they had all found so little joy in life."
My thoughts- That's a pretty ambitious and omniscient statement, lacking any evidence.
"I often look forward to a time when there won't be anything left to grow attached to. I'm tired of everything being taken away from me."
My thoughts- Personal and social responsibilities to others are tough, filled with a combination of both love and resentment.
"Loving and looking after another creature is a very troublesome business, and much harder than killing and destruction. It takes twenty years to bring up a child, and ten seconds to kill it."
My thoughts- So very true and sad this is.
