“Sisters are different. They heard the sobbing in the darkness. They lived through all your triumphs, all your favorites, all your loves and losses. They have no delusions. They lived with you too long. And so, when you achieve some victory, friends are delighted – but sisters hold your hands in silence and shine with […]

Gallina vecchia fanno buon brodo. Cosa vuol dire?  Una gallina vecchia ha la carne dura, e per farla ammorbidire, bisogna cuocerla a lungo; questo fa sì che il brodo venga più saporito.
