Personal Quote:

[on Climates (2006)] I think most of the painful feelings in life come from marriage. When I was young, with my father and mother, their problems gave me deep pain. Strindberg says there is nothing worse than a husband and wife who hate each other. If you cannot organise your feelings about this, you will always suffer. See more »
