Famous quotes containing the words milan kundera and/or kundera:

    I think, therefore I am is the statement of an intellectual who underrates toothaches.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    The present era grabs everything that was ever written in order to transform it into films, TV programmes, or cartoons. What is essential in a novel is precisely what can only be expressed in a novel, and so every adaptation contains nothing but the non-essential. If a person is still crazy enough to write novels nowadays and wants to protect them, he has to write them in such a way that they cannot be adapted, in other words, in such a way that they cannot be retold.
    —Milan Kundera (b. 1929)
