"J’ai  la tête épique. Je ne suis ni royaliste, ni communiste, ni fasciste, ni même républicain.
Je ne suis qu’un homme, un homme  avec un cœur.
Aussi longtemps qu’il y aura des battements de cœur dans ma poitrine, aussi longtemps qu’il y aura un peu de bleu au zénith, aussi longtemps qu’il y aura des printemps sous le ciel et qu’il y aura des femmes au monde, je crierai : A bas la guerre !”
