Pietro Citati, nato il 20 febbraio 1930, Sole in Pesci, Luna in Sagittario, scrittore e critico letterario italiano, “Chi vuole conoscere la luce della forma, deve attraversare l’ombra: sostare sull’orlo di un precipizio, o camminare tra due voragini, tra due follie egualmente tremende.”



Saints: Feria. Eleutherius of Tournai, Wulfric of Haselbury

ACIM: 51. (1) Nothing I see means anything. (2) I have given what I see all the meaning it has for me. (3) I do not understand anything I see.

Gospel of Thomas: (43) His disciples said to him, “Who are you, that you should say these things to us?” <Jesus said to them,> “You do not realize who I am from what I say to you, but you have become like the Jews, for they (either) love the tree and hate its fruit (or) love the fruit and hate the tree.”

Concise Epitome: 6.2 Once darkness would fade away, everyone could celebrate what occurred in the shadow. (Allorché il buio desisteva, tutti potevano rifulgere e gongolare per quello che era avvenuto nelle tenebre).
