“Il y a des beautés qui sautent aux yeux et d'autres qui sont écrites en hyéroglyphes: on met du temps à déchiffrer leur splendeur mais, quand elle est apparue, elle est plus belle que la beauté.”
Amélie Nothomb

“Il n'y a rien de gentil à laisser de faux espoirs. L'ambiguïté est la source de la douleur.”
Amélie Nothomb, Ni d'Ève ni d'Adam
