The important thing is this:  to be able at any moment to sacrifice that which we are for what we could become.  ~Charles Du Bos, Approximations, 1922, translated from French  (Thanks, Lorianne!)Per Wikipedia, – The quote has been widely attributed to Charles Dubois. However, its correct attribution appears to be to Charles Du Bos (1882-1939), the French critic of French and English literature. The quote comes from his book Approximations (1922): “…premier tressaillement vital; surtout il s’agit ? tout moment de sacrifier ce que nous sommes ? ce que nous pouvons devenir.”
