“There is something in the New York air that makes sleep useless.”

Boris Vian
“Cette histoire est vraie puisque je l'ai inventée.”

William Saroyan, The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze and Other Stories

Alessandro Baricco
“Perhaps sometimes life shows you a side of itself which leaves you with nothing more to say”
