Primo Levi Quote
Twenty billion years before now, Brilliant, soaring in space and time There was a ball of flame, solitary, eternal, Our common father and our executioner. It exploded, and every change began. Even now the thin echo of this one reverse catastrophe Resounds from the furthest reaches.
Translated by Ruth Feldman and Brian Swann - Collected Poems - In the Beginning, Faber & Faber. 1988
