“The weirdest love stories are always the best”
Margaret Mazzantini, Twice Born

“Ero felice, non ci si accorge mai di esserlo e mi chiesi perché l’assimilazione di un sentimento così benevolo ci trovi sempre impreparati, sbadati, tanto che conosciamo solo la nostalgia della felicità, o la sua perenne attesa.”
Margaret Mazzantini, Don't Move

“- Как успяваш винаги да си толкова щастлив?
- Много просто, гади ми се от тъгата.”
Margaret Mazzantini, Twice Born
