Je n'ai pas encore complètement déterminé les critères qui me font choisir ce blog ou Tempto etiam pour y mettre des citations. Si quelqu'un voit une régularité évidente qui méchappe, qu'il n'hésite pas à me déciller les yeux...
[T]he two principles, noble folly and base wisdom, exist side by side in nearly every human being. If you look into your own mind, which are you, Don Quixote or Sancho Panza? Almost certainly you are both. There is one part of you
that wishes to be a hero or a saint, but another part of you is a little fat man who sees very clearly the advantages of staying alive with a whole skin. He is your unofficial self, the voice of the belly protesting against the soul. His tastes lie towards safety, soft beds, no work, pots of beer and women with 'voluptuous' figures. (...) Whether you allow yourself to be influenced by him is a different question. But it is simply a lie to say that he is not part of you, just as it is a lie to say that Don Quixote is not part of you either, though most of what is said and written consists of one lie or the other, usually the first.
George Orwell, The Art of Donald McGill, 1941

Soyez les bienvenus sur ce petit blog sans ligne éditoriale fixe, qui échoue à mourir depuis 2005.
La fréquence de mise à jour se veut quotidienne au mieux (par ce que je suis de nature optimiste), trimestrielle au pire (parce que je suis velléitaire bien plus encore).
