Beautiful things take time

"Le belle cose sono lente" - Beautiful things take time

I heard this quote from my one of my favorite little foreign films.

Perhaps I like it so much because it sounds so beautiful in Italian... Then again, everything in Italian sounds beautiful, even if it's as simple as

"ho bisogno un bicchiere d'acqua"

which flows off the tongue so much more smoothly than

"I need a glass of water"


  1. Si, e vero!
    I answered your question on my blog :) A swiss post will be coming soon!

  2. I agree Alessia...even a shopping list sounds beautiful in Italian! I also love that movie 'Pane e Tulipani'.
