He adds, after having signed: "I find in an old album this note written in the past. In the nineteenth century the author on the stage most charged with electricity was Frederick Lemaître. - The human mind seeks the limits of its spirit; they are at the end of its nose. - What the multitude needs is mediocrity of the highest order. - Journalism is the history of the world turned into gossip. - In political crises, mercy is called treason.
