Paula C and 3 other people liked Márcia Balsas's review of Se Eu Fosse Chão:
Se Eu Fosse Chão by Nuno Camarneiro
"Os livros fazem-me pensar sobre o que li, sobre os locais onde me levaram, o que senti quando lá cheguei. Penso sobre o que se escreveu e imagino o modo como foi escrito. E, por vezes, leio livros em que o que não se escreve, o que não se diz tamb..." Read more of this review »

“If hard work is the source of happiness, then we can conclude that the main job of procrastination is to delay that happiness for excuses to kill.”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Wisława Szymborska
“اليقظة لا تتلاشى
.كما تتلاشى الأحلام
لا همهمة ولا جرس
لا صرخة أو جلبة
.تصدر عنها

مُشوشة ومُلتبسة
،هي صورُ الأحلام
.مما يدفع لتفسيرها بطرقٍ عديدة ومختلفة
،اليقظةُ تعني اليقظة
.وهذا هو اللغز الأكبر

للأحلام مفاتيح
،اليقظة تنفتح وحدها
.ولا تسمح بإغلاقها
،تتناثر منها الشهادات المدرسية والنجوم
تتساقط منها الفراشات
،وسخانات المكاوي القديمة
والقبعات بلا رؤوسها
.وجماجم الغيوم
يتكون من ذلك لغز
.لا يمكن حله

.بدوننا ما كان للأحلام أن تكون
والذي بدونه ما كانت اليقظة
،غيرُ معلوم
ونتاجُ أرقهِ
.يستغرق كل من يستيقظ

،ليست الأحلام هي المجنونة
،المجنونة اليقظة
،ولو بسبب الإصرار
الذي به تتشبث
.بمسيرة الأحداث

في الأحلام مازال
،يعيش من مات منا حديثا
يبدو أنه معافى
.ويتمتع بالشباب
اليقظة تطرح أمامنا
.جسده الميت
.اليقظة لا تتراجع قيد أنملة

،أثيرية الأحلام تجعل
.الذاكرة تتخلص منها بسهولة
.اليقظة لا تخاف من النسيان

يا لها من صلابة
،تتربع على كاهلنا
،تُثقل الصدر
.تتكوم تحت القدمين

،لا مفر منها
لأنها تُصاحبنا في كل مهرب
وليس هناك من محطة
على طريق رحلتنا
.دون أن تنتظرنا فيها”
Wisława Szymborska, النهاية والبداية وقصائد أخرى

Israelmore Ayivor
“It's when the seed grows up that it is known as a tree. Nobody calls the "seedlings" as "trees" and no seedling is ever useful because it doesn't produce fruits! You got to grow up!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Stephen Hawking
“As we shall see, the concept of time has no meaning before the beginning of the universe. This was first pointed out by St. Augustine. When asked: "What did God do before he created the universe?" Augustine didn't reply: "He was preparing Hell for people who asked such questions.”
Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time

Israelmore Ayivor
“Leave no "full stop" in between the sentences that make up your life story. If anything, let "commas" show that when you were brought down by challenges, you rose up with passion and moved on again!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes
