"Listen, my dear friend -- the poor guy who talks of liberty is scared of his mother-in-law or tied up in knots! He wants to change things. Not really. Few people really want to be free. When they are, it's not always fun. Freedom is the anxiety of emptiness -- the responsibility of solitude. They won't say so but they prefer slavery. It means security, with a salary and insurance. A slave's treated better than a free man. He's cared for. He's valuable merchandise. To live happily, live like lunatics! Freedom's a pain!" -- Paul Gegauff as Philippe
