Philippe Claudel’s…

…Philippe Claudel’s novel, Les âmes grises, ( Renaudot, 2003), which is also a film with a script written by the author himself. In a world which describes best itself by discord and cheap abuses, Claudel’s book tries to make us all remember for what is worth to stick together, because “There are not only bastards or saints into this world. There is not only white or black, but grey. It is the same with people and their souls…You yourself, you are a grey soul, like everyone else” ( the source is the Romanian edition of the novel, Polirom , Bucharest, 2007)

“Silence” ( Edgar Lee Masters)

“I have known the silence of the stars and of the sea,
And the silence of the city when it pauses,
And the silence of a man and of a maiden,
And the silence of which music alone finds the word,
And the silence of the woods before the winds of spring begin,
And the silence of the sick
When their eyes roam about the room,
And I ask: for the depths
Of what use is the language?”
