Oscar Arias

For ages the world has been living by the stupidity of an old Roman adage that says if you want peace, prepare for war.

Nous aimons des êtres, nous nous attachons à des choses, et tout ce petit monde grandit en nos coeurs et en nos esprits jusqu'à ce qu'il soit transfiguré par l'éclat de l'immortalité. Mais quand nous faisons l'expérience de leur fragilité, quand nous prenons conscience qu'elles ne sont pasd'airain mais en porcelaine, nos coeurs et nos esprits s'en retrouvent fêlés, pour toujours. Nous succombons alors à la folle tentation de descendre dans les caves profondes, en quête des morceaux brisés, obsédés par le désir aveugle de les recoller et de les tenir à nouveau entre nos mains. Nous nous risquons d'y demeurer à tout jamais, fragments de porcelaine disparates à notre tour, tels les débris d'une civilisation morte au fond de l'océan..

My father collected turtles when he was young. My parent's wedding album, there's two pictures of them getting married and the rest are just pictures of turtles.

They're so self-possessed and self-contained and there's something wise and mysterious about them. I also like that they are prehistoric animals.
