Hugo Pratt, Corto Maltese: Sous le signe du Capricorne

“Corto à lui même: Ce serait bon de vivre dans une fable.
Bouche Dorée à Corto: Oh oui!… Mais toi tu vis continuellement une fable et tu ne t'en aperçois plus. Lorsqu'un adulte entre dans le monde des fables, il ne peut plus en sortir. Le savais-tu?”
Hugo Pratt, Corto Maltese en Sibérie

“When we do not succeed to be ourselves, we finally realize that is was completely useless to exist...”
Hugo Pratt
