I finally read The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Tomorrow, I'm going to write about it on The English Muse, but I can't resist sharing one of my favorite lines from the text.
“Tomas did not realize at the time that metaphors are dangerous. Metaphors are not to be trifled with. A single metaphor can give birth to love.”
― Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
