Citazione del Giorno

“Man, by his very nature, tends to give himself an explanation of the world into which he is born.  And this is what distinguishes him from the other species.  Every individual, even the least intelligent, the lowest of outcasts, from childhood on gives himself some explanation of the world.  And with it he manages to live.  And without it, he would sink into madness.”

          — Elsa Morante (1912 – 1985)
