Rien N’est Aquis

Leave a Reply

Si on considère que rien n’est acquis, l’appétit reste le même. Chaque jour il faut re-séduire sa femme. J’ai connu la solitude, longtemps. Je sais qu’on peut tout perdre. L’amour du métier, c’est apprendre à écrire, de livre en livre. On ne domine jamais son métier, l’amour est intarissable. Quand au reste… j’ai connu la faim. Depus, je sais qu’on est propriétaire de rien, just locataire. De la vie, et de ce que vous aimez.

If you take nothing for granted, your appetite remains intact. You have to win your wife’s love every day. I experienced solitude for years. I know you can lose everything. Love for one’s work is about learning to write, book after book. One never perfectly masters one’s profession. Love is boundless. I know what hunger is like. I know that we aren’t the proprietors of anything, merely tenants. Of life, and of what you love.
