Ce qui m'intéresse, ce n'est pas le bonheur de tous les hommes, 
c'est celui de chacun.


What interests me isn't the happiness of all men, 
it's the happiness of each one.

March 10, 1920 - June 23,1959



"Le déserteur" (The Deserter) is a famous anti-war song written by French 
writer, musician/singer Boris Vian and released on May 7, 1954 during the Battle of Dien Bien Phu.
