“La phrase : "Je suis homme et rien de ce qui est humain ne m'est étranger" me semble être, sinon le dernier mot de la sagesse, en tout cas l'un des plus profonds, et ce que j'aime chez Etienne, c'est qu'il le prend à la lettre, c'est même ce qui selon moi lui donne le droit d'être juge. De ce qui le fait humain, pauvre, faillible, magnifique, il ne veut rien retrancher, et c'est aussi pourquoi dans le récit de sa vie je ne veux, moi, rien couper.”
Emmanuel Carrère, D'autres vies que la mienne

“« Boris Nicolaïevitch, la démocratie, c'est bien, mais sans élections, c'est plus sûr »”
Emmanuel Carrère, Limonov

“A visit always brings pleasure-- if not when it begins, then when it ends. (Quoted from another book)”
