Il Gattopardo - II

Outra frase emblematica do filme, que sempre esta la "in the back of my mind", dita pelo Don Fabrizio:

"We were the leopards, the lions, those who take our place will be jackals and sheep, and the whole lot of us - leopards, lions, jackals and sheep - will continue to think ourselves the salt of the earth."

Penso sempre nisso quando vejo a canalha do PT no poder. The jackals, the hyenas. The scum of the Earth.

And how about "the salt of the Earth"? Who are they?

Good question, Blogildo.

"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men."

Matt 5:13
