« All quotes from this author

Ogni stato, come s’? detto, dee haver desiderio di pace, e fame con l’opere e con le parole dimostratione, ma con tutto ci? ne gli apparati militari, dee mostrarsi bellicoso, percioche la pace non armata ? debole.
P. 190.
Translation: Every State, as has been said, should desire peace, and should manifest that desire both in word and action, but with all that, in her military preparations she should show herself warlike, for peace unarmed is a feeble thing.
Translation reported in Harbottle's Dictionary of quotations French and Italian (1904), p. 386.

He hits that short chip, moves you forward, moves you back. He uses your pace against you. If you take pace off, so that he can't use your pace, he can step around and hurt you with the forehand. Just the amount of options he has to get around any particular stage of the match where maybe something's out of sync is—seems to be endless. His success out there is just a mere reflection of all the things that he can do.

Roger Federer

Un litigante ? di vincer si ingordo,
Che non d? a se, o altrui pace o riposo,
Ma ad ogni altro piacer ? cieco e sordo.

Pietro Nelli

Libertade ? quella
Che noi dispoglia d’ogni cura amara :
Ella sol basta a fare in ogni stato
Un uom d’afflitto e misero beato.

Niccolo Forteguerri

Il pi? tristo mestier che mai sia stato,
Che sia, che mai sar? nel mondo tutto,
A mio parere, ? quel del letterato.

Giancarlo Passeroni

Ogni stato ha i suoi guai; e chi desia,
Mutando il suo, trovarne un pi? giocondo,
Cadde in una grandissima pazzia.
