SEEDS OF
WISDOM

COLLECTION
OF THOUGHTS

1960

PREFACE

I met the author when he still scratched the white sheets of the copy books like any other artist that tests his work, where the dreams of youth filled up the tepid hours of the happening of the days and of the nights. I remember when he announced the finishing of the book “White Doves”, with thoughts of love and soon afterwards, “Glow Worms”, more intended for life around us. We were in 1960…

Thereafter, an enormous distance of everything and of poetry. Many years passed till I met him again definitely. I feel happy now, to see him reformulating, shearing his youth thoughts, gathering his production in this “Seeds of Wisdom”, to transmit the simplicity of feelings purified by suffering, by pain, by labor of life, which did not succeed in deviating my great friend of his poet’s move.

I hope that many other thoughts and messages arise beside those that I know for more than twenty years, to help us learn the meaning of our own lives.

MESSAGE

Here there are seeds in plenty. Take the ones that you want and choose the place whereon you are going to accommodate them: whether in your heart or in your mind. And when the crumbs become rich trees, harvest the fruits and share them with your brothers.
