"Digo-lhe que venha, que me possua outra vez. Ele obedece. É bom o cheiro do cigarro inglês, o perfume caro, ele cheira a mel, sua pele absorveu o cheiro da seda, aquele cheiro de fruta do tussor de seda, de ouro, ele desperta desejo..."
"I tell him to come over to me, tell him he must possess me again. He comes over. He smells pleasantly of English cigarettes, expensive perfume, honey, his skin has taken on the scent of silk, the fruity smell of silk tussore, the smell of gold, he’s desirable..."
Quote by French Literature book L'Amant, Marguerite Duras.
