"He looked more like a Broadway character of the Nineties than the lovely painter that he was, and afterwards, when he had hanged himself, I liked to remember him as he was that night at the Dôme. They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure."

Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961). A Moveable Feast. London: Granada, 1984, p. 73 (It concerns the years 1921 to 1926 in Paris).

Aqui Hemingway se refere ao pintor búlgaro Jules Pascin (1885-1930), que se matou no dia 2 de julho de 1930, cortando os pulsos e se enforcando em seu atelier, em Montmartre.
