„In accordance with my conception of life, I have chosen not to bring children into the world. A coin is examined, and only after careful deliberation, given to a beggar, whereas a child is flung out into the cosmic brutality without hesitation.“

—  Peter Wessel Zapffe, To Be a Human Being (1989–90)
