As there is Easter, so there are meager times. The most beautiful laughter comes from the mouth of a mourner. Còcciula made by three is neither a failure nor a success. A mind can make a heaven out of hell, or a hell out of heaven. The last to breathe is the first to drown. Words have no bones, but can break bones. At the end of many disasters, there’s always an Italian. The doctor comes to the house where the sun can’t reach. Even the king saves his money. By firelight, an old rag looks like sturdy hemp fabric. You’re correct, but the goat is mine.
