Quote Of The Day

‘Sometimes at night the darkness and silence weigh upon me. Peace frightens me; perhaps I fear it most of all. I feel it is only a façade hiding the face of hell. I think, ‘What is in store for my children tomorrow?’ ‘The world will be wonderful’, they say.’
Steiner (Alain Cuny) responding to Sylvia (Anita Ekberg)
