“Love is when you cease hesitating.”
Frédéric Beigbeder

“Recette pour aller mieux. Répéter souvent ces trois phrases : le bonheur n'existe pas. L'amour est impossible. Rien n'est grave.”
Frédéric Beigbeder, L'amour dure trois ans

“...Дълго време едничката ми цел в живота бе да се саморазрушавам. И ето че веднъж ми се прииска щастие. Ужасно е, срам ме е, простете ми, но един ден изпаднах в плен на вулгарното изкушение да бъда щастлив. По-късно разбрах, че това е най-добрият начин да се саморазрушиш.”
Frederick Beigbeder, L'amour dure trois ans
