While very young I was seized by the world’s existence and I wanted to know it to its limits. I wasn’t made to whirl through intrigues wearing satin blinders. I didn’t construct for myself an ideal; I went for discovery. I’m quite aware that this way of life is dangerous, but the moment of danger is also the moment of hope. Besides, I have been penetrated by this idea: that one can never fall lower than oneself.
