Quotes Michelle Liked

Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
“If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change.”
Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, The Leopard

Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
“...waking at very early dawn amid all that sweat and stink, he had found himself comparing this ghastly journey with his own life, which had first moved over smiling level ground, then clambered up rocky mountains, slid over threatening passes, to emerge eventually into a landscape of interminable undulations, all of the same color, all bare as despair. These early morning fantasies were the very worst that could happen to a man of middle age; and although the Prince knew that they would vanish with the day's activities, he suffered acutely all the same, as he was used enough to them by now to realize that deep inside him they left a sediment of grief which, accumulating day by day, would in the end be the real cause of his death.”
Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, The Leopard
