“If I have left a wound inside you, it is not just your wound but mine as well.”
- Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
Il segreto è fare tutto come se vedessi solo il sole, e non qualcosa che non c’è.
Qualcosa che non c’è, Elisa
The art of losing isn’t hard to master; so many things seem filled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster.
Lose something every day.
Accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. The art of losing isn’t hard to master.
Then practice losing farther, losing faster: places, and names, and where it was you meant to travel.
None of these will bring disaster.
— One art, Elizabeth Bishop
Because that’s what you do for people you care about: you let them borrow your skin, you ground them, you remind them that they are not alone.
Non posso accettare niente di meno di quello che mi aspetto da te. Ed io mi aspetto molto da te.
- Cristiano De André, Il cielo è vuoto
A silent wish sails the seven seas.
The winds of change whisper in the trees.
And the walls of doubt tumble tossed and torn; this comes to pass, when a child is born.
— When A Child Is Born, Johnny Mathis
