Giacomo Leopardi

Giacomo Leopardi

Italian poet
The artisan or scientist or the follower of whatever discipline who has the habit of comparing himself not with other followers but with the discipline itself will have a lower opinion of himself, the more excellent he is.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Rest forever, tired heart.
The final illusion has perished.
The one we believed eternal is gone.
Just like that. Out the door desire
follows hope. Rest forever.
Enough throbbing. Nothing deserves your attention
nor is the earth worth a sigh.
Bitterness and boredom is life,
nothing else ever, and the world is mud.
Quiet now. Despair for the last time.
Fate gives us dying as a gift.
Now turn from the hills, the ugly hidden power
which rules for the common evil<More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's not our disadvantages or shortcomings that are ridiculous, but rather the studious way we try to hide them, and our desire to act as if they did not exist.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ignorance is the greatest source of happiness.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The greater part of the people we assign to educate our sons we know for certain are not educated. Yet we do not doubt that they can give what they have not received, a thing which cannot be otherwise acquired.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
