«Une fois de plus, mon fils, je suis porté par cette mer, témoin de tous mes errements et qui à présent te convoie vers ton premier exil. A Rome, tu étais "le fils de l’Africain", en Afrique, tu seras "le fils du Roumi".
Où que tu sois, certains voudront fouiller ta peau et tes prières. Garde-toi de flatter leurs instincts, mon fils, garde-toi de ployer sous la multitude!

Musulman, juif ou chrétien, ils devront te prendre comme tu es, ou te perdre. Lorsque l'esprit des hommes te paraîtra étroit, dis-toi que la terre de Dieu est vaste, et vastes Ses mains et Son cœur. N'hésite jamais à t'éloigner, au-delà de toutes les mers, au-delà de toutes les frontières, de toutes les patries, de toutes les croyances.»


Amin Maalouf, «Léon, l'Africain»
