“A pošto su to deca, pričaj im o bitkama
i kraljevima, đavolima, slonovima i
anđelima, ali ne zaboravi da im pričaš
o ljubavi i sličnim stvarima.

(epigraf, Radjard Kipling - Životna smetnja)”

Mathias Énard, Parle-leur de batailles, de rois et d'éléphants

“In der Liebe können wir die Leiden des anderen ebenso wenig teilen wie unsere eigenen heilen.”
Mathias Énard, Compass
