This is my perspective and has always been my perspective on life: I have a very grim, pessimistic view of it. I always have, since I was a little boy. It hasn't gotten worse with age or anything.

Why are our days numbered and not, say, lettered? Woody Allen

You will notice that what we are aiming at when we fall in love is a very strange paradox. The paradox consists of the fact that, when we fall in love, we are seeking to re-find all or some of the people to whom we were attached as children.

So that love contains in it the contradiction: The attempt to return to the past and the attempt to undo the past. Woody Allen
