    Ok...translate for me please.. unfortunately in the last few months I stopped studying italian because things were happening in my personal life.... so I have alot of catching up to do.... i will now have to start from Chapter 1 from my Italian course book...

    Ok, I'll try.

    Non - Negative particle = Not
    tutti - from predicate "tutto", plural male = All
    i - determinative article, plural, male = the
    mali - from word "male", plural = evil (here in the sense of negative events)
    vengono - from verb "Venire", present indicative third plural = Come (here has the sense of "happen")
    per - preposition = for, to
    nuocere - from verb "nuocere", infinitive present = Harm, damage

    The sense is: not all the bad things that happened in the life have negative consequences... sometime they have positive consequences!
