 “[…] not the excess of pleasure, but the pleasure of excess”

 “è la cosa più bella del mondo…..”
 “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.” ~ Pablo Picasso

 “ricordami: tutto questo coraggio non è neve.”

 “To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.”
~ Woody Allen

“By prizing heartfulness above faultlessness, we may reap more from our effort because we’re more likely to be changed by it.” ~ Sharon Salzberg
