Quotes

Hrabia: Do you like poetry?
Karol: That's a confusing question. I don't know what you mean by poetry. You could ask the same question about music or philosophy. Is it possible to like all kinds of music?
Hrabia: Petrarch, do you like him?
Karol: As much as I know him.
Hrabia: That means as much as you don't know him. That's a pity.
