“Le plus important est ce en quoi vous croyez. Que ce soit la vérité ou pas. La croyance est parfois plus forte que la réalité. Et puis il faut prendre la vie telle qu'elle est. [...]”
Romain Puértolas, La petite fille qui avait avalé un nuage grand comme la tour Eiffel

“Il voyait déjà le best-seller sur les étagères des plus grosses librairies, traduit en trente-deux langues, dont l'ayapaneco, ancien dialecte mexicain qui n'était plus parlé que par deux personnes au monde, qui ne savaient pas lire.”
Romain Puértolas, L'extraordinaire voyage du fakir qui était resté coincé dans une armoire Ikea

“why are some people born here and others there? why do some have everything and others nothing? why do some live while others- always the same ones- have the right only to shut up and die?”
Romain Puértolas
