Je suis vivant. Et pendant que je mange, je ne fais rien d'autre que manger. Quand je marcherai, je marcherai, c'est tout. Et s'il faut un jour me battre, n'importe quel jour en vaut un autre pour mourir. Parce que je ne vis ni dans mon passÃ© ni dans mon avenir. Je n'ai que le prÃ©sent, et c'est lui seul qui m'intÃ©resse. Si tu peux demeurer toujours dans le prÃ©sent, alors tu seras un homme heureux.
