good that you took my quote from Lampedusa (Il Gattopardo) as an example James, I translated it more colloquially in my own words, but semantically it is the same.My quote for the day is from Tallulah;
"Cocaine habit-forming? Of course not. I ought to know, I've been using it for years."
- Tallulah [Brockman] Bankhead (1903 - 1968)

Digressing a little....believe it or not a child's eyewitness account of an accident is favoured over that of an adult-it is seen to be more detailed and exact.
