Just one quote by Cesare Pavese

Cesare Pavese (9 September 1908 – 27 August 1950) was an Italian novelist, poet, short story writer, translator, literary critic, and essayist. He is often referred to as one of the most influential Italian writers of his time. After World War Ⅱ Pavese joined the Italian Communist Party and worked on the party's newspaper, L'Unità. The bulk of his work was published during this time. Toward the end of his life, he would frequently visit Le Langhe, the area where he was born, where he found great solace. Depression, the failure of a brief love affair with the actress Constance Dowling, to whom his last novel and one of his last poems ("Death will come and she'll have your eyes") were dedicated, and political disillusionment led him to his suicide by an overdose of barbiturates in 1950.
 Idleness makes hours pass slowly and years swiftly; industriousness makes the hours short and the years long. 
L'ozio rende lente le ore e veloci gli anni. L'operosità rapide le ore e lenti gli anni.
