Then you read a book… or you take a trip, and you discover that you're not living...
"You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating.
The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness and then the absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom. Millions live like this, without knowing it.
And then a person, a book, a song, takes place and it awakens them and saves them. Some never awaken."
