Inscriptions and Marks
  • Signed: l.c.: Corita
  • (not assigned): Printed text reads: N[O] // that's what's needed don't you see? that! nothing else matters half so much. to reassure one another. to answer each other. Perhaps only you can listen to me and not laugh. Everyone has, inside himself...what shall I call it? A piece of good news! Everyone is...a very great, very important character! Yes, that's what's we have to tell them up there! Every man must be persuaded--even if he's in rags--that he's immensely, immensely important! Everyone must respect him; and make him respect himself too. They must listen to him attentively. Don't stand on top of him, don't stand in his light. But look at him with deference. Give him great, great hopes he needs them...especially if he's young. Spoil him! Yes, make him grow proud! Ugo Betti
