Inscription.  

En ce moment grave de ma longue vie,
j'ai trouvé ici ce que je cherchais :
être en face de moi-même.
L'Irlande me l'a offert
de la façon la plus delicate,
la plus amicale.

(18.VI.1969)
———————————
At this solemn moment of my long life
here I have found what I was looking for:
to be facing myself.
Ireland has extended it to me
in the most delicate,
the most friendly manner.

(18.VI.1969)
