“En 1933, a commencé une époque qu'un des plus grands parmi nous a justement appelée le temps du mépris. Et pendant dix ans, à chaque nouvelle que des êtres nus et désarmés avaient été patiemment mutilés par des hommes dont le visage était fait comme le nôtre, la tête nous tournait et nous demandions comment cela était possible. (...) Et ceux qui ont fait cela savaient céder leur place dans le métro, tout comme Himmler, qui a fait de la torture une science et un métier, rentrait pourtant chez lui par la porte de derrière, la nuit, pour ne pas réveiller son canari favori. (...)
Qui oserait parler ici de pardon ? Puisque l'esprit a enfin compris qu'il ne pouvait vaincre l'épée que par l'épée, puisqu'il a pris les armes et atteint la victoire, qui voudrait lui demander d'oublier ? Ce n'est pas la haine qui parlera demain, mais la justice elle-même, fondée sur la mémoire. Et c'est de la justice la plus éternelle et la plus sacrée, que de pardonner peut-être pour tous ceux d'entre nous qui s

“Et sans doute Marx n'a pas reculé en 1870 devant l'éloge de la guerre dont il pensait qu'elle devait faire progresser par ses conséquences les mouvements d'émancipation. Mais il s'agissait d'une guerre relativement économique et Marx raisonnait en fonction du fusil chassepot qui est une arme d'écolier. Aujourd'hui vous et moi savons que les lendemains d'une guerre atomique sont inimaginables et que parler de l'émancipation humaine dans un monde dévasté par une troisième guerre mondiale a quelque chose qui ressemble à une provocation. (...) Il y avait aussi dans Marx une soumission à la réalité, et une humilité devant l'expérience qui l'auraient sans doute conduit à réviser quelques-uns des points de vue que ses disciples d'aujourd'hui veulent désespérément maintenir dans la sclérose du dogme. Il me semble impensable que Marx lui-même, devant la désintégration de l'atome et devant la croissance terrifiante des moyens de destruction, n'eût pas été amené à reconnaître que les données obj ...more Albert Camus

J.D. Salinger
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced--or seemed to face--the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Dante Alighieri
“Amor, ch'al cor gentile ratto s'apprende
prese costui de la bella persona
che mi fu tolta; e 'l modo ancor m'offende.

Amor, che a nullo amato amar perdona,
Mi prese del costui piacer sì forte,
Che, come vedi, ancor non m'abbandona..."

"Love, which quickly arrests the gentle heart,
Seized him with my beautiful form
That was taken from me, in a manner which still grieves me.

Love, which pardons no beloved from loving,
took me so strongly with delight in him
That, as you see, it still abandons me not...”
Dante Alighieri, Inferno: A New Verse Translation

Alan Moore
“My mother said I broke her heart...but it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, but it's all we have left in this place. It is the very last inch of us...but within that inch we are free.”
Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

Hermann Hesse
“We are not going in circles, we are going upwards. The path is a spiral; we have already climbed many steps.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
