Listen: if everyone must suffer, in order to buy eternal harmony with their suffering, pray tell me what have children got to do with it? It’s quite incomprehensible why they should have to suffer, and why they should buy harmony with their suffering.
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

I’m walking out now into the soft light, the cooling hum of evening, and I will love you tonight, and tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, and still many more, so very many more tomorrows.
Vladimir Nabokov, in a letter to his wife Véra [March 1925] from Letters to Véra, tr. by Olga Voronin & Brian Boyd
