May you always have something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for.

Events now far in the past were once far in the future.

Every possibility begins with the courage to imagine

It's a little long and I had to traslate it, but it's pretty true.

"Non bisogna credere che gli uomini si inchinino spontaneamente alla virtý, al carattere, al talento; non bisogna credere che l'innocenza, la rettitudine, la mitezza siano una difesa sufficiente nel mondo: se la tua individualitŗ non impone rispetto, gli uomini onoreranno in astratto le tue doti eminenti, ma le disprezzeranno e le derideranno nella tua persona"

"You shouldn't think that people stoop of their own accord to virtue, disposition, talent; you shouldn't think that innocence, probity, mildness are a sufficient protection in the world: if your personality doesn't command respect, people will celebrate your eminent skills in the abstract, but they will scorn and mock them in your person."

(Piero Martinetti)

I hope to not have made too much mistakes. Too bad it doesn't exist a english traslation of Martinetti's works.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you havenít found it yet, keep looking. Donít settle

Yesterday is history

Tomorrow is a mystery

Today is a gift.....
That's why it's called the present
