“Sunt suspendat între cer şi pământ, prea greoi ca să mă înalţ spre stele şi prea eteric ca să scormonesc în noroi.”
Giovanni Papini, Un uomo finito

“Câte vieţi sunt într-o viaţă, câţi oameni într-un om.”
Giovanni Papini

“Inca de pe atunci, indepartat de la orice caldura si bucurie, ma ascundeam, ma linisteam pe mine insumi, in reveria lacoma, in solitara rumegare a lumii reintregite prin eu. Nu eram placut celorlalti, iar ura m-a intarcuit in singuratate. Singuratatea m-a facut mai trist si mai antipatic; tristetea mi-a strans inima si mi-a ascutit mintea. Firea mea deosebita m-a indepartat chiar de cei mai apropiati, iar despartirea m-a facut si mai deosebit.”
Giovanni Papini, Un uomo finito
