Raymond Aubrac

French resistance hero Raymond Aubrac dies aged 97. Obituaries: NYT, Guardian. Both of these end with the same quote:

In an interview in Le Monde in March last year, Aubrac said the decision he was most proud of was choosing his partner. "You know," he said, "in life there are only three or four fundamental decisions to make. The rest is just luck."

(And the Philip K Dick articles also on the front page of Liberation are here and here, in French of course).
