The present conditions of life have not yet erased the traces of the past. We run too fast, but we still do not move enough. He looks but he does not contemplate, he sees but he does not think. He runs away from time, which is made of thought, and yet all he can feel is his own time, the present  (Eugenio Montale Quotes) Man cannot produce a single work without the assistance of the slow, assiduous, corrosive worm of thought  (Eugenio Montale Quotes) It has often been observed that the repercussion of poetic language on prose language can be considered a decisive cut of a whip  (Eugenio Montale Quotes) I have always knocked at the door of that wonderful and terrible enigma which is life  (Eugenio Montale Quotes) Evidently the arts, all the visual arts, are becoming more democratic in the worst sense of the word  (Eugenio Montale Quotes) Art is the production of objects for consumption, to be used and discarded while waiting for a new world in which man will have succeeded in freeing himself of everything, even of his own consciousness  (Eugenio Montale Quotes) True poetry is similar to certain pictures whose owner is unknown and which only a few initiated people know  (Eugenio Montale Quotes) There is also poetry written to be shouted in a square in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

To the eyes you are a flickering light, to the feet, thin ice that cracks; and so may no one touch you who loves you  (Eugenio Montale Quotes)
