    “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.

    “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.”

    Locked In
    by Ingemar Gustafson

    All my life I lived in a coconut.
    It was cramped and dark.
    Especially in the morning when I had to shave.
    But what pained me most was that I had no way
    to get into touch with the outside world.
    If no one out there happened to find the coconut,
    If no one cracked it, then I was doomed
    to live all my life in the nut, and maybe even die there.
    I died in the coconut.
    A couple of years later they found the coconut,
    cracked it, and found me shrunk and crumpled inside.
    “What an accident!”
    “If only we had found it earlier...”
    “Then maybe we could have saved him.”
    “Maybe there are more of them locked in like that.”
    “Whom we might be able to save,”
    they said, and started knocking to pieces every coconut
    within reach.
    No use! Meaningless! A waste of time!
    A person who chooses to live in a coconut!
    Such a nut is one in a million!
    But I have a brother-in-law who
    lives in an
    acorn.
    It is therefore worth while to search out the bounds between opinion and knowledge; and examine by what measures, in things whereof we have no certain knowledge, we ought to regulate our assent and moderate our persuasion. (John Locke)

    Devotions-by John Donne

    'No Man is an Island'

    No man is an island entire of itself; every man
    is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
    if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
    is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
    well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
    own were; any man's death diminishes me,
    because I am involved in mankind.
    And therefore never send to know for whom
    the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

    Everything we do before a pandemic will seem alarming. Everything we do after it will seem insufficient. Stay at home.

    Il riso fa buon sangue e bel viso.

    Laughter makes you healthy (good blood) and beautiful.

    Da quei tai che non ridon mai - stai lontan come dai guai.

    Stay away from those who never laugh; they're trouble.
