“«L’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle»”
Dante Alighieri, Paradiso

Leo Tolstoy
“Remember that there is only one important time and it is Now. The present moment is the only time over which we have dominion. The most important person is always the person with whom you are, who is right before you, for who knows if you will have dealings with any other person in the future? The most important pursuit is making that person, the one standing at your side, happy, for that alone is the pursuit of life.”
Leo Tolstoy, The Emperor's Three Questions
