Giacomo Leopardi

Giacomo Leopardi

Italian poet
Man is doomed either squander his youth, which is the only time he has to store provisions for the coming years and provide for his own well-being, or to spend his youth procuring pleasures in advance for that time of life when he will be too old to enjoy them.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]
Nature, with her customary beneficence, has ordained that man shall not learn how to live until the reasons for living are stolen from him, that he shall find no enjoyment until he has become incapable of vivid pleasure.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Death is not an evil, because it frees us from all evils, and while it takes away good things, it takes away also the desire for them. Old age is the supreme evil, because it deprives us of all pleasures, leaving us only the appetite for them, and it brings with it all sufferings. Nevertheless, we fear death, and we desire old age.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The artist's conception of his art or the scientist's of his science is usually as great as his conception of his own worth is small.More Giacomo Leopardi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
