Donna Rosa: When a man starts to touch you with words, he's not far off with his hands.
Donna Rosa: When it comes to bed, there's no difference between a poet, a priest, or a communist!
Mario Ruoppolo: If you make this much of a fuss about one poem, you're never going to win that Nobel Prize.
Pablo Neruda: Man has no business with the simplicity or complexity of things.
Mario Ruoppolo: So what if we break our chains? What do we do then?
