Quotes Jacques, Friend of Morin: Alas, ideals can't always be realized. We either accept of reject life as it's been given to us.
Edgar Morin, Himself: You have to adjust?
Jacques, Friend of Morin: Precisely. I admire and envy anyone who can fully adjust. I'm split internally, intimately. I give up on part of myself.
Edgar Morin, Himself: And what happens to the rest?
Jacques, Friend of Morin: Well, I keep it intact. Or rather, I preserve it.
Edgar Morin, Himself: What part of you is that?
Jacques, Friend of Morin: The real me.
