Nel tempo degli dèi – Il calzolaio di Ulisse

Maybe that's why they can't understand that what happens to us humans changes things, sometimes forever. To none of us can the gods give back the ten years spent on the esplanade in front of Troy, far from home, and the ruin that those ten years generated, for some, is not yet over.
