Milan Kundera on why man cannot be happy


"Human time does not turn in a circle; it runs ahead in a straight line. That is why man cannot be happy: happiness is the longing for repetition." — "The Unbearable Lightness of Being," among the vanishingly small number of books whose film versions are equally arresting and so cunningly created that neither is diminished when experienced after the other.

An opinion not shared by Kundera.
