Taguita de Crash, scriu primul paragraf de la pagina 111 din prima carte care imi sta acum in maini:
„The nature of the lymphocyte receptor for antigen has provided challenges to immunologists since Erlich proposed in 1896 that the side chains which allowed cells to recognize antigen were identical to the antibodies that subsequently appeared in the circulation.”
Paragraful este de fapt mult mai lung, dar ma indoiesc ca prezinta interes pentru public. Si pe mine a reusit sa ma plictiseasca asa ca m-am oprit dupa prima fraza.
In schimb, va mai ofer si primul paragraf de la pagina 111 a cartii care mi-a captat atentia, dar care va trebui sa mai astepte putin pana termin cu cartea ce contine paragraful anterior.
„In any case, though, I believe that I have not been fair to you and that, as a result, I must have led you around circles and hurt you deeply. In doing so, however, I have led myself around circles and hurt myself just as deeply. I say this not as an excuse or a means of self-justificatin but because it is true. If I have left a wound inside you, it is not just your wound but mine as well. So please try not to hate me. I am a flawed human being – a far more flawed human being than you realize. Which is precisely why I do not want you to hate me. Because if you were to do that, I would really go to pieces. I can’t do what you can do: I can’t slip inside my shell and wait for things to pass. I don’t know for a fact that you are really like that, but sometimes you give me that impression. I often envy that in you, which may be why I led you around circles so much.”
Nu este un paragraf revelator al esentei cartii, dar este de la pagina 111.
