"We are all
faced throughout our lives with agonising decisions, moral choices. Some
are on a grand scale, most of these choices are on lesser points. But
we define ourselves by the choices we have made. We are in fact the sum
total of our choices.
Events unfold so unpredictably, so unfairly. Human happiness does not
seem to have been included in the design of creation. It is only we, with
our capacity to love, that give meaning to the indifferent universe.
And yet, most human beings seem to have the ability to keep trying and
even to find joy from simple things like their family, their work and
from the hope that future generations might understand more."
- Professor Levy in Woody Allen’s
Crimes and Misdemeanours,
