Citation du Jour
Soyez simple et vivez simplement. Ne faites pas de vagues, n'essayez pas d'être intéressant, gardez vos distances, soyez honnête, combattez l'envie d'être bien vu des autres.

Be simple and live simply. Don't make waves, don't try to be interesting, keep your distance, be honest, resist the desire to be esteemed by others
.
--Etty Hillesum
