"In less than a year, Jérôme changed although I was not aware of it. Since last summer, perhaps. His behaviour, his thoughts, his curiosity changed; and also, the urge he felt, so new, to be loved beyond the mere pleasure: it made him closer to my young saturnine friend, the second Dioscure. He is less playful, but his charm has something different now. He is more than ever curious about everything. And I am aware he is questioning what he knows -- this is often more important than questioning about what we ignore."
