Alessandro Manzoni

Manzoni

 

What a great thought, written almost two hundred years ago, by Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873):
Bullies, oppressors and all men who do violence to the rights of others are guilty not only of their own crimes, but also of the corruption they bring into the hearts of their victims.”
I Promessi Sposi by Alessandro Manzoni (The Betrothed, Bruce Penman translation)
