La bêtise n’est pas mon fort. J’ai vu...

Language: French (Français)

« La bêtise n’est pas mon fort. J’ai vu beaucoup d’individus, 
j’ai visité quelques nations, j’ai pris ma part d’entreprises 
diverses sans les aimer, j’ai mangé presque tous les jours, 
j’ai touché à des femmes. Je revois maintenant quelques 
centaines de visages, deux ou trois grands spectacles, 
et peut-être la substance de vingt livres. Je n’ai pas 
retenu le meilleur ni le pire de ces choses : est resté 
ce qui l’a pu.
