“E’ per questo che, in fondo al cuore, mi considero un fallito. Non che questo importi molto. Sub specie aeternitatis tutti noi, senza eccezioni, siamo dei falliti. Non ricordo più dove ho letto che “la morte intacca la nostra fiducia nella vita mostrandoci che in fin dei conti tutto è ugualmente futile se visto in rapporto alle tenebre che ci attendono.” Sì, “futile” è la parola esatta. Eppure non posso lamentarmi: ho più amici che nemici e ci sono momenti in cui sono quasi felice di essere al mondo – quando guardo il sole che tramonta e la luna che spunta, o vedo la neve sulla cima della montagna.”
Fred Uhlman, L'amico ritrovato
