Pablo Neruda: Ode alla Pace / Peace for twilights to come!

Sia pace per le aurore che verranno,
pace per il ponte, pace per il vino,
pace per le parole che mi frugano
più dentro e che dal mio sangue risalgono
legando terra e amori con l’antico
canto;

Walter Crane (1845-1915) The Angel of Peace

Wisława Szymborska | The End and the Beginning / La Fine e l'Inizio

Dopo ogni guerra
c'è chi deve ripulire.
In fondo un po' d'ordine
da solo non si fa.

C'è chi deve spingere le macerie
ai bordi delle strade
per far passare
i carri pieni di cadaveri.

Pablo Picasso | Guernica, 1937 | Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid

Claude Debussy: "Music is the space between the notes"!

(Achille) Claude Debussy (22 August 1862 – 25 March 1918) was a French composer. He is sometimes seen as the first Impressionist composer, although he vigorously rejected the term.
He was among the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Born to a family of modest means and little cultural involvement, Debussy showed enough musical talent to be admitted at the age of ten to France's leading music college, the Conservatoire de Paris.
He originally studied the piano, but found his vocation in innovative composition, despite the disapproval of the Conservatoire's conservative professors.
He took many years to develop his mature style, and was nearly 40 when he achieved international fame in 1902 with the only opera he completed, Pelléas et Mélisande.
