I have to admit. I never was a fan of Woody Allen. Among the throngs of films that he have acted, directed or produced, I have seen only one. And that was also because Scarlett Johansson was in the film. 🙂
However, there was 1 quote from him that I remembered till this day. That quote stirred up my thoughts from the moment I first heard about it several years back and brought upon interesting discussions among my circle of friends, including my?then girlfriend turn fiancee turn?wife.
This is the quote from Woody Allen.
?To love is to suffer.. to avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness.
In order to understand its full meaning,?one is required?to sit calmly and let the statement sink in first.
This entry, or rather the quote, is meant for that tiny visitor out there who wishes to seek some answers to life’s most difficult question perhaps ?
