Sample text

Il a suffi à un prince hindou de voir un infirme, un vieillard et un mort pour tout comprendre; nous qui les voyons, nous ne comprenons rien, car rien ne change dans notre vie. Nous ne pouvons renoncer à quoi que ce soit; cependant les évidences de la vanité sont à notre portée. Malades d'espoir, nous attendons toujours; e~ la vie n'est que l'attente devenue hypostase. Nous attendons tout - même 1e Rien - plutôt que d'être réduits à une suspension éternelle, à une condition de divinité neutre ou de cadavre.

La trahison qui vise un objet précis, dût-elle comporter le déshonneur ou la mort, n'est point mystérieuse : on a toujours l'image de ce qu'on a voulu détruire ; la culpabilité est claire, qu'on l'admette ou PRÉCIS DE DÉCOMPOSITION qu on la nie. reje~tent : et vous vous résignez au bagne ou a la gmllotme ... Mais il existe une modalité bien plus complexe de trahir, ' sans référence imm~diate, sans rapport a' un objet ou à une personne. Ainsi : abandon,ner tout sans qu'on sache ce que représente ce ~out; s 1s?

Si elles se conformaient à une seule de ces rengaines, la face du monde en serait transformée. Mais l'éternité - surgie d'une pensée antivirale- ne saurait être un réflexe humain sans danger pour l'exercice des actes : elle devient lieu commun, pour qu'on puisse l'oublier par une répétition machinale. La sainteté est une aventure comme la poésie. Les hommes disent : « tout passe », - mais combien saisissent -la portée de cette terrifiante banalité ? combien uient la vie, la chantent ou la pleurent ?
