“Love is when you like someone so much you have to call it something else.”
Marina Fiorato, The Botticelli Secret

“A world of words where the black characters printed on the parchment he held meant more to this monk than the people or places around him.”
Marina Fiorato, The Botticelli Secret

“His life was cheap to him. Perhaps that's why he rode faster than any other, perhaps that was why he had walked into the house of Aquila without the quickening of a heartbeat: because at the heart of his courage was the fact that he really did not care if he died. Such courage is not true courage. True courage is when a man quakes with fear in the face of death, yet still risks his life for something he cares about. Ricardo Bruni did not know this yet, but he was to learn it soon.”
Marina Fiorato, The Daughter of Siena
