face à la découverte de cette spoliation future, il n’y a que deux attitudes possibles: soit on décide de ne pas s’attacher aux êtres et aux choses, afin de rendre l’amputation moins douleureuese; soit on décide, au contraire, d’aimer autant plus les êtres et les choses, d’y mettre le paquet – “puisque nous n’aurons pas beaucoup de temps ensemble, je vais te donner en un an tout l’amour que j’aurais pu te donner en une vie.”

faced with the discovery of this inevitable spoliation, there are only two possible attitudes: either we decide not to attach ourselves to others and to things, with the ends of making the amputation less painful; or we decide, instead, to love others and things as much as possible, to give our all – “since we don’t have much time together, i will give you in one year, all the love i could have given you in one lifetime.”
