… Giancarlo Cesana’s reflections on our limitedness.

“Limits are our human condition, to be shared. This is the only way in which we can respect also the people whose limitations are apparently more evident than ours.”

“If I am the ugliest man in the world, but the most beautiful woman in the world loves me, I am not bothered by being the ugliest man in the world. I don’t care about that at all, because I am the object of what I care most about, which is someone else’s love for me. So the only real way to overcome the limit is by another’s love.”

“The whole problem in life is that the other who fulfills us is limited too. Even you, to whom I say “I love you,” severely experience being limited. Even the other person is not enough … The most important thing is having friends, someone who loves you.”
