Quote: “You know how I love Italy, and as the genial sunshine warmed every corner of my being as I walked today, there came into my mind what someone has so beautifully said … Italy is your mother and your ardent mistress rolled in one. Italy steals you from yourself. You live with Italy in your heart, talking her, thinking her, as you live under the dominance of the lover who is your world.”
