Tra le corde di un ring si sono consumate le lotte individuali più accese della storia dell'umanità, perché non esiste combattente più furente, più generoso, di chi si confronta ad armi pari. Raccontare le mie storie insieme all'andare per mare alla maniera dei marinai vittime di naufragio, mi restituisce quel pezzetto d'anima che la giacca, la cravatta e la scrivania avevano fatto lentamente deperire. Perché scrivere è fuggire. Fuggire è lottare. E chi lotta, non si è ancora arreso
