By Albert Camus

"Caligula : C'est une vérité toute easy et toute claire, un peu bête, mais difficile à découvrir et lourde à porter.
Hélicon : Et qu'est-ce donc que cette vérité, Caïus ?
Caligula : Les hommes meurent et ils ne sont pas heureux.

Caligula : Alors, c'est que tout, autour de moi, est mensonge, et moi, je veux qu'on vive dans l. a. vérité !"
