“No, no nostalgia. Maybe then as well, many had opened their wings like so many seagulls who were ultimately unable to fly.

“And now? Now as well, we feel like two people: on the one hand the conformist who obsequiously navigates the squalor of his own daily survival, and on the other the seagull, no longer with even the intention of flight, because the dream has shriveled away.

Two wretchednesses within a single body."

“...Vive le roi quand même. French royalists who were frustrated with the fecklessness of Louis XVI would open up about his shortcomings in discreet conversations, and then end by saying 'Long live the king anyway!'” - Outis Philalithopoulos on Giorgio Gaber's “Some people were communists”
