"Diffidare di tutti? Temere qualunque cosa significhi l'ignoto? Eppure, ci vuole imprudenza Dobbiamo aprire, di tanto in tanto, la ferita. Un contatto insalubre. Con la polvere, con la brutalità, con la semplicità aspra. Immondizia e microbi, il lamento della banalità. Anticorpi prodotti dalla contaminazione, dai microbi e dalla sporcizia. E, quindi, rigenerazione."(Una finestra sulla classe operaia, p. 134)
