inscribed: 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 / a piece of good news
