A Solution to Pressing Problems

Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873), I Promessi Sposi, chapter II (tr. Archibald Colquhoun):
People of far greater importance than Don Abbondio have more than once found themselves in situations so unpleasant, and been so uncertain what to do next, that they have found the best expedient was to take to their beds with a fever.

È accaduto più d'una volta a personaggi di ben più alto affare che don Abbondio, di trovarsi in frangenti così fastidiosi, in tanta incertezza di partiti, che parve loro un ottimo ripiego mettersi a letto con la febbre.
