“Le bonheur est cette danse où l'on s'approche et l'on s'écarte sans se perdre. Il est même fait des larmes des longues séparations à condition que viennent les retrouvailles.”
Timothée de Fombelle, Le Livre de Perle

“There are some closed doors we’re so frightened of opening that we don’t see them any more. We’ve pushed furniture in front of them; we’ve jammed the lock.

Timothée de Fombelle, Vango: Between Sky And Earth

“[Toby] reflected that being cruel sometimes makes you rich and powerful, but it always makes you ugly.”
Timothée de Fombelle, Toby Alone
