    “A stu Mundu nu tieni nienzi, se nu llu tiri cu lli tienti.”
    In this World you’ll have nothing, if you don't pull it with your teeth.

    “Mpara nn'arte e mintila te parte.”
    Learn a manual trade and put it aside.
    (Just in case all this school stuff doesn’t work out)


    Grandpa said so.

    "He wore the unmistakable look of a man about to be present at a row between women, and only a wet cat in a strange backyard bears itself with less jauntiness than a man faced by such a prospect."

    We live in our physical bodies like lobsters in the sea, struggling all our lives to reach outside our shells to touch something else, even for some fraction a second, and transcend our isolation.


    Non si fa il proprio dovere perchè qualcuno ci dica grazie, lo si fa per principio, per se stessi, per la propria dignità. Oriana Fallaci

    “To be a scientist is to be naive. We are so focused on our search for truth we fail to consider how few actually want us to find it. But it is always there whether we see it or not, whether we choose to or not. The truth doesn’t care about our needs or wants—it doesn’t care about our governments, our ideologies, our religions—to lie in wait for all time. This at last is the gift of Chernobyl. Where I once would fear the cost of truth, now I only ask what is the cost of lies.”

    -Valery Legasov
