“Quem nunca sofreu por amor nunca aprenderá a amar. Amar é o terror de perder o outro, é o medo do silêncio e do quarto deserto, de tudo o que se pensa sem puder falar, do que se murmura a sós sem ter a quem dizer em voz alta. É preciso sentir esse terror para saber o que é amar. E, quando enfim tudo desaba, quando o outro partiu e deixou atrás de si o silêncio e o quarto deserto por entre os escombros e a humilhação de uma felicidade desfeita, resta o orgulho de saber que se amou.”
Miguel Sousa Tavares, Rio das Flores

“And once again I believe that nothing that's important really becomes lost. We just delude ourselves, thinking that we own the things, the moments and the others.

Miguel Sousa Tavares

“It’s almost always sadder to stay than to depart”
Miguel Sousa Tavares, Equador
