La pratica degli affetti

The practice of affections

«Trying is not ignoring the path, nor to take the road, but rather opening up the way to oneself […] it isn't the dizzying opening of endless equivalent possibilities, nor the precise consciousness of a single possibility to realize, but, rather, the effort of detangle by a group of possibilities, the one that allows the success».
