Rembrandt | Quotes / Aforismi


  • Try to put well in practice what you already know; and in so doing, you will in good time, discover the hidden things which you now inquire about. Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know.
  • Prova a mettere bene in pratica quello che già sai; così facendo sarai sempre in tempo, e scoprirai le cose nascoste che ora stai cercando. Metti in pratica quello che sai, e ciò ti aiuterà a rendere chiaro ciò che ora non conosci.
