I think you’re whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. You’re whole, and then you’re cracked open. ”
— Philip Roth

It’s getting them wrong that is living, getting them wrong and wrong and wrong and then, on careful reconsideration, getting them wrong again. That’s how we know we’re alive: we’re wrong.”
— Philip Roth
