Everything since Homer has improved, except poetry.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Men are ready to suffer anything from others or from heaven itself, provided that, when it comes to words, they are untouched.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]
