Quotes
Être homme, c’est précisément être responsable. C’est connaître la honte en face d’une misère qui ne semblait pas dépendre de soi. C’est être fier d’une victoire que les camarades ont remportée. C’est sentir, en posant sa pierre, que l’on contribue à bâtir le monde. (Being human is precisely to be responsible. Is to know shame opposite a misery that did not seem to depend on itself. Is proud to be a victory that the comrades have won.It felt, laying the stone, which is helping to build the world.) – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
