Schmitt Eric Emmanuel Quotes

"Incerc sa le explic parintilor mei ca viata e un dar buclucas. La început ai tendinta sa-l supraestimezi crezand ca viata pe care ai primit-o este vesnica. Apoi, dimpotriva, il subestimezi, gasind ca-i o porcarie, scurta de nu-ntelegi nimic din ea si pe care uneori ti-ar veni s-o arunci de sa nu se vada. Abia catre sfarsit pricepi ca nu-i vorba de nici un dar, ci de un simplu imprumut. Pe care trebuie sa incerci sa-l meriti."
