«Ce sont des personnes qui laissent peu de traces derrière elles. Presque des anonymes. Elles ne se détachent pas de certaines rues de Paris, de certains paysages de banlieue, où j’ai découvert, par hasard, qu’elles avaient habité. Ce que l’on sait d’elles se résume souvent à une simple adresse. Et cette précision topographique contraste avec ce que l’on ignorera pour toujours de leur vie — ce blanc, ce bloc d’inconnu et de silence.» Patrick Modiano

(“These are people who leave few trails behind them. Almost unknown persons. They do not stand out in certain streets of Paris, from certain suburban landscapes, where I discovered, by chance, they had lived. For all we know about them often comes down to a simple address. And this topographic clarification contrasts with what we shall ignore for ever about their life — this white, this block of unknown and silence.”)

Les travaux des enfants sur le sable aplani
Nous oublierons ces mots si précis et si vagues
Derrière qui chacun nous sentions l’infini.» Marcel Proust

(“Time erases everything like the waves erase the works of the children on the levelled sand. We shall forget these words so precise and so vague behind which the two of us felt the infinity.”)
