Quote by Boris Pasternak
They don't ask much of you. They only want you to hate the things you love and to love the things you despise.
This quote suggests that "they" impose a simplistic demand on individuals; to disdain what they once cherished and favor what they previously detested. It appears to critique the influence of manipulative forces that attempt to control one's thoughts and preferences. This could signify the pressure society or certain entities impose to conform to specific ideologies, ultimately influencing people to go against their own instincts and beliefs.
