Trade liberty for safety or money and you'll end up with neither. Liberty, like a grain of salt, easily dissolves.
The power of questioning -- not simply believing -- has no friends. Yet liberty depends on it.

New York Times Obituary

 

To Gilles
by Guido Monte

and yet a forgotten way inside, thereby we’ll go out to see the light

world behind a world, full of tears at a too high price. and nothing be understood, between blocks of stones following steps of fatigue, a time for everyone of fatigue infinie, di fatica di vivere e di vedere l’orrore effort to live and see horror

before and behind the world, before: ashabdham silence in the same breath de vida, primeval breath…

and going now, after the hiding, to the life ins leben

Guido Monte teaches Italian and Latin literature in Palermo, Italy.
