“If you fall down ten times, get up
another ten, another hundred, may be five hundred;
not to be your falls so violent
nor, by law, must be so many.
With the genial hunger than the plants
assimilate the humus avaricious,
swallowing the bitterness of the reproaches
were formed all the hollys and the saints.
Asinine obstinacy, to be strong,
nothing else needs the creature,
and in any unhappy figure me
that no blunts the hooks of luck …
All the incurable has cure
five minutes before reaching death!”


Avanti, by Almafuerte (English translation)
