"Che le cose siano così, non vuol dire che debbano andare così. Solo che, quando si tratta di rimboccarsi le maniche e incominciare a cambiare, vi è un prezzo da pagare, ed è allora che la stragrande maggioranza preferisce lamentarsi piuttosto che fare."

"The fact that things are as they are does not mean that they must stay as they are. But there is this: when it comes to rolling up your sleeves and trying to change things, there is a price for you to pay and it is then that the great majority of people prefer to complain rather than do something."

- Giovanni Falcone, 18.5.1939 - 23.5.1992

I fear I am part of the majority.

Have there really but 22 years flown by? Falcone and Borsellino ought not to be forgotten.
Good on you, Lady Limoncello.

Thank you, Sean. Yes, incredible to think it was 22 years ago. Falcone and Borsellino are certainly not forgotten here.
