Like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
The Tempest - William Shakespeare

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Anche quest'anno sarà un Ferragosto piovoso? Ormai sembra diventata una tradizione...

O illumining sun

O Fosterer, O sole Seer, O Ordained, O illumining Sun, O Power of the Father of creatures, marshal thy rays, draw together thy light; the Lustre which is thy most blessed form of all, that in Thee I behold. The Purusha there and there, He am I.
Isa Upanishad
