A Quote by Orson Welles on polarity, pole, murderer, saint, good, bad, philistine, aesthete, truth, and contradiction

"For thirty years people have been asking me how I reconcile X with Y! The truthful answer is that I don't. Everything about me is a contradiction and so is everything about everybody else. We are made out of oppositions; we live between two poles. There is a philistine and an aesthete in all of us, and a murderer and a saint. You don't reconcile the poles. You just recognize them."

Orson Welles (1915 - 1985)
