“L’Église espagnole est devenue la Putain des militaires épurateurs.”
Lydie Salvayre, Pas pleurer

“ho notato che nelle lettere le menzogne scaturiscono e proliferano in maniera quasi naturale, come nei romanzi.”
Lydie Salvayre, La dichiarazione

“Ce que j'aimais sans mesure chez ces sept femmes (lesquelles ayant pris le risque de vivre sans prudence ne purent éviter celui d'en souffrir) c'était leur puissance poétique, c'était la grâce de leur écriture, c'était le retournement qu'elles opéraient sur les forces de mort et leur pouvoir de conjuguer l'oeuvre avec l'existence, c'était le bouleversement qu'elles provoquaient en moi et le surcroît de vie qu'elles ne cessaient depuis longtemps de m'insuffler.”
