"Era bastato modificare leggermente il corso di un fiume sbarrandolo per provocare un cambiamento fatale alla montagna. Ci sarebbero voluti chissà quanti decenni perchè potesse ritrovare la quiete. E’ come per le storie d’amore o le malattie da curare : tutto richiede la giusta dose di tempo, c’è un percorso ben preciso da seguire prima di approdare alla serenità. Gli uomini sono i soli a cercare di accorciarlo e di affrettarlo. E’ l’avidità a spingerli. Ecco perchè tutte le religioni cercano in primo luogo di combattere l’avidità"

Unless he could take her with all her faults, she would not care for his regards; ‘love’ was too noble a word to call such cold calculating feeling as his must be, who went about with a pattern idea in his mind, trying to find a wife to match. Besides, there was something degrading, Jemina thought, in trying to alter herself to gain the love of any human creature

the night, the sleepless night, was so crowded and haunted by miserable images, that she longed for day; and when day came, with its stinging realities, she wearied and grew sick for the solitude of night

Today is the perfect day to get lost in a good book.

Every day is a perfect day to get lost in a good book even if I do not have much time except when I am on the train going to work or before going to bed.

"THE TOUCH OF A VANISHED HAND"   1870 

Charles Edward Perugini

Exhibition “Alma Tadema e i pittori dell’800 Inglese, collezione Perez Simon" @ Chiostro del Bramante in Rome.

The title of this painting comes from this poem of Tennyson:

BREAK, BREAK, BREAK

BY ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON

Break, break, break,
         On thy cold gray stones, O Sea!
And I would that my tongue could utter
         The thoughts that arise in me.

O, well for the fisherman’s boy,
         That he shouts with his sister at play!
O, well for the sailor lad,
         That he sings in his boat on the bay!

And the stately ships go on
         To their haven under the hill;
But O for the touch of a vanish’d hand,
         And the sound of a voice that is still!

Break, break, break
         At the foot of thy crags, O Sea!
But the tender grace of a day that is dead
         Will never come back to me.
