Erri De Luca, E disse

Elizabeth Gaskell
“One word more. You look as if you thought it tainted you to be
loved by me. You cannot avoid it. Nay, I, if I would, cannot
cleanse you from it. But I would not, if I could. I have never
loved any woman before: my life has been too busy, my thoughts
too much absorbed with other things. Now I love, and will love.
But do not be afraid of too much expression on my part.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

Leo Tolstoy
“I've always loved you, and when you love someone, you love the whole person, just as he or she is, and not as you would like them to be.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“There are two things children should get from their parents: roots and wings.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sultan Bahu
“Through study and learning they earn the pleasure of princes-
What comes of such learning?
Butter never rises from boiling sour milk.
Speak bird! What do you yearn by pecking newly sprouted grain?
Nursing one broken heart, Bahu, is equal to the worship of many years.”
Sultan Bahu
