“Heads will fly all over the place, others will explode by themselves, everyone will have their chance to betray, and those who don't betray will be betrayed.”
Sandro Veronesi, Quiet Chaos

“Non bisogna scordare mai che il tempo scorre in un verso solo, e ciò che si vede ripercorrendolo all'indietro è fuorviante. Il tempo non è palindromo: partendo dalla fine e risalendolo all'indietro tutto sembra assumere significati diversi, inquientanti, sempre, e non bisogna farsi impressionare da queste cose.”
Sandro Veronesi, Quiet Chaos
