“Daca nu sunteti vanatori si pescari puneti mana pe toiag si colindati mostenirea aceasta fara pereche. Nicaieri in lume nu sunt locuri mai frumoase, n-am spus ca avem cele mai alese frumuseti din lume, ci ca si aici sunt privelisti tot asa de frumoase ca cele mai laudate de aiurea. Cel care vede Delta intelege singuratatile Africii. Cel care suie in Calimani ori Retezatu, ori Ceahlau a trecut in zona fara de prihana a altei lumi.
Cei care sunteti vanatori sau pescari n-aveti nevoie de indemnul meu ca sa iesiti in mijlocul naturii. Dupa ani de rataciri si practica, vad ca imi mai raman totusi destule, necunoscute, si va indemn pe cei de la campie sa va suiti la munte, sa ascultati cerbul la inceputul toamnei, iar pe tovarasii vanatori din munte ii sfatuiesc sa incerce farmecul unei zile cu luntrea in singuratatile pruteturilor ori dunaritelor.”

Mihail Sadoveanu

Citatul zilei

“Un popor, ca si un copac si ca oricare alta fiinta organica, nu poate inainta decat din sine insusi, decat dezvoltandu-si treptat aptitudinile si puterile sale innascute.”

Autumn’s reflection

You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.

Ernest Hemingway
