"There are thin lines which separate tragedy, melodrama, and the grotesque."

"We, the Polish Nation - all citizens of the Republic - we can most beautifuly in the world, in truly Latin-style fall from one extreme to the other. We love to transform "celebrating" to Malysz madness, and mourning into surrealism. Muttering, or sobbing, we swear that now we'll be together and nothing can share us. Then we provoke stupid ostentation, or simply forget about what happened yesterday. Only sociologists enjoy this who made dozens of doctorates, exploring the sensation of Polish national mourning. "
