“A poesia está guadarda nas palavras - é tudo que
eu sei.
Meu fado é o de não saber quase tudo.
Sobre o nada eu tenho profundidades.
Não tenho conexões com a reladidade.
Poderoso para mim não é aquele que descobre ouro.
Para mim poderoso é aquele que descobre as
insignificâncias (do mundo e as nossa).
Por essa pequena sentença me elogiaram de imbecil.
Fiquei emocionado.
Sou fraco para elogios.”
Manoel de Barros, Tratado Geral Das Grandezas Do Ínfimo

“Sou hoje um caçador de achadouros da infância.
Vou meio dementado e enxada às costas cavar no meu quintal vestígios dos meninos que fomos”
Manoel de Barros

“O esplendor da manhã não se abre com faca.”
Manoel de Barros
