Human beings

Human beings are gaps
where new things are constantly born.

Kim Chiha

Too long

Eugene V. Debs

Adulto? Mai -- mai, come l'esistenza

di splendido giorno en splendido giorno...
Pari, sempre pari con l'inespresso,
all'origine di quello che io sono.

y tanto lo que presumimos
y tan lentamente aprendemos,
que preguntamos, y morimos.

Pablo Neruda
