Dino Buzzati
“Ma l'incontro con la Laide gli aveva lasciato uno strano turbamento. Forse anche per il ricordo della tipa incontrata in corso Garibaldi. Come se qualcosa lo avesse toccato dentro. Come se quella ragazza fosse diversa dalle solite. Come se fra loro due dovessero succedere molte altre cose. Come se lui ne fosse uscito differente. Come se Laide incarnasse nel modo più perfetto e intenso il mondo avventuroso e proibito. Come se ci fosse stata una predestinazione. Come quando uno, senza alcun particolare sintomo, ha la sensazione di stare per ammalarsi, ma non sa di che cosa né il motivo. Come quando si ode dabbasso il cigolio del cancello e la casa è immensa, ci abitano centinaia di famiglie e all'ingresso è un continuo andirivieni eppure all'improvviso si sa che ad aprire il cancello è stata una persona la quale viene a cercarci.”
Dino Buzzati, Un amore

William Shakespeare
“So full of artless jealousy is guilt,
It spills itself in fearing to be spilt.”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

Ted Hughes
“The Other"

She had too much so with a smile you
took some.
Of everything she had you had
Absolutely nothing, so you took some.
At first, just a little.

Still she had so much she made you feel
Your vacuum, which nature abhorred,
So you took your fill, for nature's sake.
Because her great luck made you feel unlucky
You had redressed the balance, which meant
Now you had some too, for yourself.
As seemed only fair. Still her ambition
Claimed the natural right to screw you up
Like a crossed out page, lossed into a basket.
Somebody, on behalf of the gods,
Had to correct that hubris.
A little touch of hatred steadied the nerves.

Everything she had won, the happiness of it,
You collected
As your compensation
For having lost. Which left her absolutely
Nothing. Even her life was
Trapped in the heap you took. She had nothing.
Too late you saw what had happened.
It made no difference that she was dead.
Now that you had all she had ever had
You had much too much.
Only you
Saw her smile, as she took some.
At first, just a little.”
Ted Hughes

Marianne Williamson
“The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.”
Marianne Williamson

Dino Buzzati
“Difficile è credere in una cosa quando si è soli, e non se ne può parlare con alcuno. Proprio in quel tempo Drogo si accorse come gli uomini, per quanto possano volersi bene, rimangano sempre lontani; che se uno soffre, il dolore è completamente suo, nessun altro può prenderne su di sé una minima parte; che se uno soffre, gli altri per questo non sentono male, anche se l'amore è grande, e questo provoca la solitudine della vita.”
Dino Buzzati, The Tartar Steppe
