For centuries, the mammoth buried in ice had been dreaming the heat of a museum.
The spider doesn't know if it is spring or summer, it only waits for the flies season.
A camel can resist ten days without drinking. A jackass the whole life without dreaming.
aphorism by Fabrizio Caramagna from The Aphorism in Italy (L'aforisma in Italia. Antologia dal Premio “Torino in Sintesi”) (2011), translated by Dan Costinaş
