Aphorism Forty-Two; (One of a Series; Collect the Whole Set!)

Da mio amico, Michele Gazich, musicista e poeta e spiritu:

"Tra il diavolo e il mare . . . non vai a pescare."
(Between the devil and the sea . . . don't go fishing.")

But wait, there's more:

"Between the wood and the bark
Hide your love
Between the stone and the hammer
Make flowers grow..."

"Between Isaac and the knife
There's Abraham's heart..."

"Between the mouth and the wine
The road is short...
("Tra il vino e la mano
C'e un breve cammino...")

"Tra toro e torero
C'e poco pensiero..."
("Between bull and bullfighter
There's little thought...")

I have been penning my own quotes just in case I get famous and people start to actually give a shit about what I have to say. A quick look at the lame works of other famous people in any book of quotations should be enough inspiration for almost anyone.

“Keep your friends close but keep your enemies close to an open window on the 10th floor.”

See how easy that was?
