J.M. Coetzee dixit

"Well, that is what you risk when you fall in love. You risk losing your dignity".

"I wanted our relationship to grow and develop, [s]he wanted it to remain the same, without change. That was what caused the breach, in the end. Because between a man and a woman there is no standing still, in my view. Either you are going up or you are going down".
