Pierre Brossolette
June 25, 1903 - March 22, 1944



"What they were yesterday, they don't wonder one to another. Under the Cross of Lorraine, the socialist of yesterday does not ask the companion who falls if he was Croix-de-Feu yesterday. In the brotherly clay of the soil, d'Estiennes d' Orves and Péri don't wonder if the one was yesterday royalist and the other communist. Companions of the same Liberation, father Savey does not ask to lieutenant Dreyfus which god called his fathers. From the swwells of the Arctic to those of the desert, from the ossuaries of France to the cemeteries of sands, the only faith which they confess is their faith in quartered but unanimous France. For what they ask us it's not to pity them, but to continue them. For what they expect from us, it's not a regret, but an oath. It's not a sob, but a run-up."

Bernard Blier (January 11, 1916 - March 29, 1989)

Unforgetable Bernard Blier...




"I've already seen fake asses but you are a synthesis."






"I know well that i should not cry like that but it's happiness. I'm too much happy... I don't even want to go out anymore, i don't eat anymore...
I check out... Ah...! Ahh...! Ahhh...! It's beautiful as a crib !"
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:




- What happens to you, Mr. Marrec?
- Nothing...
- Hey, i'm not dreaming, it's the iron team... Well, i was just telling to Saïd, this poor Plouc whis the poor eyes he got now, soon we'll have to set nets along the road, so that he doesn't go to hell in the ravine... Well, bravo young people...
- You got a tow bar ?
- I got all that is needed, always. When you drive in front of me i even take an extra engine, you will not surprise me anymore... Finally, this time we shall not have to dig, that's already something... I prefer that we operate you in surface because as you were last time, by improving a little bit, it was necessary to bring the speleologists...
- The what?
- No, it's nothing, forget... What is needed with him is to wait that he runs out and especially to keep your mouth shut, because if ever you have the misfortune to say a word, a single one, it's as if you put two coins in the machine, it doesn't stop anymore...

Henri Laborit ( November 21, 1914 - May 18, 1995 )



" As long as we shall not have very widely broadcasted through the people of this planet the way their brain works, the way they use it and as long as we shall not have said that up to here it was always to dominate the other one, there is not much chance that something will change. "

Henri Laborit
