    Mia Couto
    “Não chegamos realmente a viver durante a maior parte da nossa vida. Desperdiçamo-nos numa espraiada letargia a que, para nosso próprio engano e consolo, chamamos existência. No resto, vamos vagalumeando, acesos apenas por breves intermitências.”
    Mia Couto, Jesusalém

    Rosa Lobato de Faria
    “Conforta-me pensar que a vida não começa nem acaba aqui. Um dia regressaremos ao lugar de onde viemos, um lugar de repouso e de paz, um lugar livre de mágoas. Mas quantos lugares de dor teremos de atravessar para alcançá-lo? Quanta tristeza, quanto sofrimento, quanta crueldade no destino do Homem! E se o mundo é repleto de maravilhas é só para não perdermos de vista a morada original, que nos aguarda ao fim dos nossos doze trabalhos de Hércules, e a que os poetas e os místicos chamam paraíso e eu chamo, simplesmente, amor. As guerras fazem-se para alcançar a paz, ensinaram-nos durante séculos. (...)O sofrimento serve para alcançar a bem-aventurança, invento eu, para não morrer de desespero.”
    Rosa Lobato de Faria, A Trança de Inês

    Paulo Coelho
    “Tears are words that need to be written.”
    Paulo Coelho


  • #13
    Paulo Coelho
    “You have to take risks, he said. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day, God gives us the sun--and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day, we try to pretend that we haven't perceived that moment, that it doesn't exist--that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow. But if people really pay attention to their everyday lives, they will discover that magic moment. It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane, like putting our front-door key in the lock; it may lie hidden in the quiet that follows the lunch hour or in the thousand and one things that all seem the same to us. But that moment exists--a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to perform miracles.”
    Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

    The brave man with a sword”

    Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
