This is the journal of one of Pessoa's many alternate personages. This is the documentation of an everyday, poetical philosopher. The book actually felt more like poetry than anything else. It is absolutely beautiful.

"I'm handed faith like a sealed package on a strange-looking platter and am expected to accept it without opening it. I'm handed science, like a knife on a plate, to cut the folios of a book whose pages are blank. I'm handed doubt, like dust inside a box - but why give me a box if all it contains is dust?"
