Famous quotes containing the words italians and/or renowned:

    I love Italian opera—it’s so reckless. Damn Wagner, and his bellowings at Fate and death. Damn Debussy, and his averted face. I like the Italians who run all on impulse, and don’t care about their immortal souls, and don’t worry about the ultimate.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man’s character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
