ALFIERI, Count Vittorio quotes
(1749-1803), Italian poet
Heaven will permit no man to secure happiness by crime.
Disgrace is not in the punishment, but in the crime.
Almost all my tragedies were sketched in my mind, either in the act of hearing music, or a few hours after.
There is a silence, the child of love, which expresses everything, and proclaims more loudly than the tongue is able to do.
Deep vengeance is the daughter of deep silence.
Well does Heaven take care that no man secures happiness by crime.
