Fiorello Mancini is a good man, and a bit unusual. He is a politician, and at the same time, he has kept his promises. He is very careful about what he promises. He also likes to be as open as he can. “I’ve kept very few secrets,” he says, “because secrets are heavy and dangerous.” Politics is very difficult and even more difficult if you are open and haven’t kept people’s secrets. “I’ve kept alive in politics because I’ve kept enough friends who need to help me, and I’ve never kept quiet. Quiet politicians are forgotten.” By doing these things, he has kept up with the other politicians who are less honest than he is.
