Il y a quelque chose dans ce récit de fascinant. La façon dont sont décrits les personnages et leur histoire m'a captivée. J'ai été prise dans l'engrenage, sentant la tension monter...

Alessandro Baricco
“He puts down the pen, folds the sheet of paper, and slips it inside an envelope. He stands up, takes from his trunk a mahogany box, lifts the lid, lets the letter fall inside, open and unaddressed. In the box are hundreds of identical envelopes, open and unaddressed. He thinks that somewhere in the world he will meet a woman who has always been his woman. Every now and again he regrets that destiny has been so stubbornly determined to make him wait with such indelicate tenacity, but with time he has learned to consider the matter with great serenity. Almost every day, for years now, he has taken pen in hand to write to her. He has no names or addresses to put on the envelopes: but he has a life to recount. And to whom, if not to her? He thinks that when they meet it will be wonderful to place the mahogany box full of letters on her lap and say to her, 'I was waiting for you.'

"She will open the box and slowly, when she so desires, read the letters one by one. As she works her way back up the interminable thread of blue ink she will gather up the years-- the days, the moments-- that that man, before he ever met her, had already given to her. Or perhaps more simply, she will overturn the box and astonished at that comical snowstorm of letters, she will smile, saying to that man, 'You are mad.' And she will love him forever.”
Alessandro Baricco

“I am evolving from being an animal,' he said. 'But it is going very, very slowly. Sometime I try to cry and laugh like other people, just to see if it feels like anything. Yet tears don't come. Laughter doesn't come.”
Blaine Harden, Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West

Sheryl Sandberg
“When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier.”
Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

Philippe Besson
“Paul l'a écoutée, sans ciller, sans répliquer ; son beau visage détruit est demeuré impassible. A la fin, il a seulement glissé : "Je me demandais quand tu te déciderais à me faire cet aveu. Je me demandais lequel de vous deux viendrait le faire. Ce que tu m'annonces, je le sais depuis longtemps. Je le sais depuis le jour de mon retour, depuis la seconde exacte où tu as posé ton regard sur moi. C'était sur toi, l'effroi, la honte, la gêne, et puis aussi la légèreté des femmes amoureuses. C'était immanquable.”
Philippe Besson, La Trahison de Thomas Spencer

“That's the thing about pain. It demands to be felt.”
