The beauty of knowledge is not knowledge itself, but the amazement one feels in confronting and discovering worlds and thoughts beyond oneself. They are not unreachable worlds, but they certainly ask for humility and dignity such as to make a gift of every new encounter and voice that narrates all knowledge. Knowledge is never an end in itself, whoever believes this has learned nothing. Knowledge … Continua a leggere In Praise of Studying
I learned very early “to be next to”, even when “to be next to” meant being “alone”. Loneliness, after all, may not be a condition of the soul, but the visible deception of those who, not being well versed in the superficiality of the crowd and appearances, find the voices they need to give meaning to your life in the ability to stand next to … Continua a leggere Loneliness or Freedom?

Stop picking on doctors and nurses who are overworked, risk their own lives, and are often put in a position to neglect their family in order to devote more of their contractual time to the lives of others. It is right that they do it in emergencies like these, in fact they do not shy away, but it would also be right that at least … Continua a leggere They Are Working for Us
