« L’amour arrache les masques sans lesquels nous craignons de ne pas pouvoir vivre et derrière lesquels nous savons que nous sommes incapables de le faire. J’emploie le mot amour ici non pas seulement au sens personnel mais dans celui d’une manière d’être, ou d’un état de grâce, non pas dans l’infantile sens américain d’être rendu heureux mais dans l’austère sens universel de quête, d’audace, de progrès. » (La Prochaine fois, le feu [1963], Gallimard, 2018)
