Quotes
Aunt: [thinking] Communism died, but what came in its place? A load of greed. A life spent longing for things you don't need!

Aunt: I want my death to be just like my life. I want the mess, the struggle, and the strife.

Cleaner: And, in the end, it simply isn't worth / Your while to try and clean your life away. / You can't. For, everything you do or say / Is there, forever. It leaves evidence. / In fact it's really only common sense; / There's no such thing as nothing, not at all. / It may be really very, very small / But it's still there. In fact I think I'd guess / That "no" does not exist. There's only "yes".
