About Me


No more missions!


- However, I'll not say this. I was not deceived by anything, I was not disappointed by anything. I got to know people, good ones and bad ones - and the bad ones were only bad for some causes. I wrote, and lived. Nothing to regret.
- All in all, so far life was good for you, is that correct?
- In general, yes. I don't see any reason to reproach it. It gave me what I wanted, and at the same time, it showed me that it was not important. What can be done!
(Conversation ends with a laughter spree due to the surprise tone in the last statement.)
- Laughing should be preserved! You can conclude that way: Laughters accompany...

(From the interview with Jean-Paul Sartre by Michel Contat)
Note: Translated from French to Turkish, then to English. Probably not very satisfying, but what can be done!
