L’haver buone leggi ? nato, come dice il proverbio, da cattivi costumi.

Giovanni Francesco Lottini

(Dice il proverbio) impara arte e virt?,
E se il bisogno vien cavala su.

Giovanni Maria Cecchi

The gods throw the dice, and they don't ask whether we want to be in the game or not. They don't care if when you go, you leave behind a lover, a home, a career, or a dream. The gods don't care whether you have it all, whether it seems that your every desire can be met through hard work and persistence. The gods don't want to know about your plans and your hopes. Somewhere they're throwing the dice — and you are chosen. From then on, winning or losing is only a question of luck.
The gods throw the dice, freeing love from its cage. And love can create or destroy — depending on the direction of the wind when it is set free.

Paulo Coelho

Stephen Hawking
