Quotes 2017 (extra)

"Often, a moment's impulse sets off a suicide. The day my friend Romain Gary killed himself, he called Geneva, where they were expecting him, to arrange a ride from the airport; he asked a nurse what medicine he should take; he had lunch with Claude Gallimard, his editor, to discuss taxes. He killed himself at the end of this ordinary afternoon."

Roger Grenier, "Leave-taking" in Palace of Books.
