“Understanding RELATIONSHIPS –
If I have something to share, however, I didn’t share it with you because you didn’t ask me. It means I DON’T TRUST YOU.
Even if you didn’t ask me, I still shared it with you, giving my trust to you. However, you shared it with the entire world. It means YOU ARE UNTRUSTWORTHY.
I know what you know, however, when I asked you, you lied to me. It means YOU ARE DISHONEST.
LOVE and AFFECTION are two essential elements of HUMAN RELATIONSHIP. However, whether you deserve my LOVE and AFFECTION or not is based on your TRUSTWORTHINESS and HONESTY.”

“Ce qui m’a le plus étonné (absurdement, bien sûr) à Paris, c’est de n’avoir aperçu aucun carrosse avec un malade à l’intérieur. J’ai découvert un jour au coin d’une rue un invalide dans un chariot mécanique et j’ai voulu lui foncer dedans, l’embrasser et le serrer dans mes bras comme si ç’avait été un frère. Mais tu ne sais que trop bien que, dans la vie, précisément les gestes les plus sensés sont interdits.”
