“It is doubtless a great advantage to have spirit, courage, common sense and similar talents,” to quote Perrault. But the greatest happiness is to be able to teach others with virtue.
In his modest thoughts, Bernard Duly Fanfan partially translates life for us in all its reality. The author was born in Haiti. After studying at the Frères de l’inscription Chrétienne [Brothers of Christian Instruction], where Brother George gave him the nickname “Fanfan la Tulipe”, while tying his cross of honor on Sunday for his beautiful writing, he was successfully admitted to Lycée Toussaint Louverture in Port-au-Prince for secondary school studies. Unfortunately, he was not able to complete his studies there. While still young, in the early 1970s, he started and completed his university studies in Boston, Massachusetts.
Despite the setback, he never lost the taste for writing, his real passion. Endowed with a simple style, typical of those born under the sign of Cancer, he never put down the pen in his mind. He even sometimes felt as if his hand were a scroll. He is like an artist, courting the greatest lines of nature imagined with his brush. However, he does not hide his inevitable nervousness when speaking in public. To conquer this, he cradles his pen and talks sweetly to it, as if it were a loved one. As a result, he has earned the honor of presenting this book, Thoughts and Realities, to you. He hopes that these thoughts will perhaps draw your mind to story from your own memory.
