Mario Sironi | Scritti e pensieri

"Ciò che diciamo attualità, modernità non è spesso che la sola realtà dell'esistenza - il resto è morte eco sotto volte lontane e paurose, o silenzio e buio impenetrabile".
"Gli uomini debbono essere governati. Lasciarli liberi di fare quello che vogliono significa incrementare la bestialità e il disordine".
"L'uomo disprezza, aggredisce, tortura gli animali - maledetto lui che fa il deserto intorno a sé sulla polvere".

Gustave Van de Woestyne | Expressionist painter

From: Sotheby's
In 1900, after art studies in his native city of Ghent, Gustave Van de Woestyne (1881-1947) settled in Sint-Martens-Latem, on the banks of the Leie river, where an artistic colony of poets, painters and sculptors had formed in search of an innovative and meaningful artistic expression.
His admiration for the technique and spirituality of the Flemish old masters led him to develop an art of mystic-religious symbolism and allegory.
He also drew inspiration from the Italian Primitives, Maurice Denis and fresco painting and became one of the figures of the "First School of Larthem".

Pedro Salinas | Lì, oltre il sorriso / There, behind laughter

Lì, oltre il sorriso,
non ti si conosce più.
Vai e vieni, scivoli
per un mondo di valzer...

"Che allegra!" dicono tutti.
Ed è che tu allora
tenti di essere altra,
così somigliante

Wisława Szymborska | Un incontro inatteso / An unexpected meeting

Siamo molto cortesi l'uno con l'altro,
diciamo che e' bello incontrarsi dopo anni.

Le nostre tigri bevono latte.
I nostri sparvieri vanno a piedi.
I nostri squali affogano nell'acqua.
I nostri lupi sbadigliano alla gabbia aperta.
