Bio

"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference...Action is the only remedy to indifference whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation, take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented" - Elie Wiesel "Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies" - Song of Solomon "The advantage of a big city: move on a few meters, you find solitude again" - "Foucault's Pendulum", Umberto Eco "Scrivere è sempre nascondere qualcosa in modo che venga poi scoperta" - Italo Calvino "La lettura è un atto necessariamente individuale molto più bello dello scrivere" - Italo Calvino "L'uomo costruisce casa perché è vivo ma scrive libri perché si sa mortale. Vive in gruppo perché è gregario, ma legge perché si sa solo" - "Come un romanzo", Daniel Pennac "Tra la forma della Vita e la Vita la differenza è la stessa di un Liquore fra le labbra e un Liquore nella Bottiglia: l'ultimo - eccelente da conservare - ma per l'estatico bisogno lo stappato è supperiore - lo so perché ho provato". - Emily Dickenson (who actually sounds so much better in Italian to me...) "Fox-terriers are born with about four times as much original sin as other dogs are, and it will take years and years of patient effort on the part of us Christians to bring about any appreciable reformation in the rowdiness of the fox-terrier nature". - Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K. Jerome "People get ideas about a thing they call life. It sets them all wrong. I think it's poets that are responsible chiefly" - Decline and Fall, Evelyn Waugh "The center of the Milky Way is the creamiest part of the Galaxy. It is rather frothy, even whipped".
