Cesare Pavese

"Life is pain and the enjoyment of love is an anesthetic."
~Cesare Pavese

Author Profession: Poet
Nationality: Italian
Born: September 9, 1908
Died: August 27, 1950


This quote is amazingly true considering all that life throws at each of us.   We step through each day wondering where our next foot will be placed, blind to the possibilities that lay around every corner.  We cannot plan for each possible event because this would drive our minds to the brink of explosion.  What we can do is move through life's pain knowing that the love we give and receive from those important to us will carry our steps closer to our destination.  I will always be grateful or this quote from Cesare as it reminds us to cherish that love we have over the pain life gives.
