"The city’s a heart, I said, and in that a heart and a city were sutured into a third thing, a heartish city, and cities are heart-stained, and hearts are city-stained too."

Your hiding place isn’t watertight. Life trickles in everywhere, and you’re forced to react. No one asks if it’s true, if you’re genuine or false. Such questions matter only in the theatre, and hardly there either.Persona | dir. Ingmar Bergman (1966)
The first time it was reported that our friends were being butchered there was a cry of horror. Then a hundred were butchered. But when a thousand were butchered and there was no end to the butchery, a blanket of silence spread.
When evil-doing comes like falling rain, nobody calls out “stop!”
When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable the cries are no longer heard. The cries, too, fall like rain in summer."
