“The more one analyzes people, the more all reasons for analysis disappears.
Sooner or later one comes to that dreadful universal thing called human nature.”
- Oscar Wilde, “The Decay of Lying”, 1891
"People love scandal; people love drama. They love stripping away the layers to
see what's really in there, and they'll do anything- as well as make it up- to get it."
- Julia Roberts
"People don't have any mercy. They tear you limb from limb, in the name of love. Then, when you're dead, when they've killed you by what they made you go through, they say you didn't have any character. They weep big, bitter tears - not for you. For themselves, because they've lost their toy."
- James Baldwin, “Another Country”
