“He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "it’s" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

He or she who abandon a project before starting it, who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know, he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
die slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.”
Martha Medeiros

“Mais que as mentiras, o silêncio é que é a verdadeira arma letal das relações humanas.”
Martha Medeiros, Doidas e Santas

“Sempre desprezei as coisas mornas, as coisas que não provocam ódio nem paixão, as coisas definidas como mais ou menos, um filme mais ou menos ,um livro mais ou menos.
Tudo perda de tempo.
Viver tem que ser perturbador, é preciso que nossos anjos e demônios sejam despertados, e com eles sua raiva, seu orgulho, seu asco, sua adoraçao ou seu desprezo.
O que não faz você mover um músculo, o que não faz você estremecer, suar, desatinar, não merece fazer parte da sua biografia.”
Martha Medeiros
