"Writer would be pleased to come into contact with any person to whom a personal experience, very precise and devoid of any religious or supernatural association, would have suggested that within what we call the waking state, man is in fact asleep; and that is a real shame, since no joy, no delight among the whole field of human experience can begin to approximately describe the felicity that it is to be awake".

Newspaper ad placed by Stephen Jourdain that the Figaro Litteraire refused to publish, February 14th, 1961

From Cette vie m'aime ( This Life Loves Me)

translated by Gilles Farcet
