Corto Maltese was a big dreamer, but was more than a dreamer, cause, once upon the time all of the ideas in the genius dreaming mind, were and today are materialised, in the all the things that we see around us.
Everything, was once just the idea in the genius transcendent dreaming mind.
Corto character was a complex sailor-adventurer, sailor, pirate, treasure-hunter.
Overall he was a gentleman of fortune that goes around having adventures.
He goes from masonic lodges in Venice, to riverboats and revolutionaries in the Amazon, to pirates in the Pacific, to just about anything…
As a boy growing up in the quarter of Cordoba, one day Maltese discovered that he had no fate line on his palm. Therefore he carved his own fate line with a razor, determining that his fate was his to choose.
After that, he wandered through more ports than any other adventurer and fulfilled the destiny and dreams he had chosen.
Destiny is no matter of chance.
It is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
