Frédéric Beigbeder

“...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.”
Frédéric Beigbeder, L'amour dure trois ans
