Essa foi minha leitura-de-fisioterapia: Comecei na segunda ou terceira sessão, e terminei hoje na décima e última. Eu gostei mais do início do livro que do resto dele, mas, ainda assim, gostei do livro em geral. É uma paródia dos contos de fadas, mas ...more

Eu gostei bem mais do terceiro volume que dos dois outros. Ele não me deixou a impressão de "a história é interessante, mas é mal escrita". Parece que a autora se preocupou menos em enfiar o cenário goela abaixo e se focou mais em fazer algo que ela ...more

Joseph Campbell
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell
“Sit in a room and read--and read and read. And read the right books by the right people. Your mind is brought onto that level, and you have a nice, mild, slow-burning rapture all the time.”
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

James A. Owen
“All the various time travel devices used by Verne and Bert were stored in the repository, Poe explained, including the ones that had never quite worked as they were meant to. There was one that resembled a blue police box from London—“Stolen by a doctor with delusions of grandeur,” said Poe—one that was simply a large, transparent sphere—“Created by a scientist with green skin and too much ego,” said Verne—and one that was rather ordinary by comparison.
“This one looks like an automobile,” John said admiringly, “with wings.”
“The doors open that way for a reason,” Verne explained, “we just never figured out what it was. The inventor of this particular model tried integrating his designs into a car, an airplane, and even a steam engine train. He was running a crackpot laboratory in the Arizona desert, and he never realized that it was not his inventions themselves, but his proximity to some sort of temporal fluctuation in the local topography, that allowed them to work.”
“What happened to him?” asked Jack.
“He’d get the machines up to one hundred and six miles per hour,” said Bert, “and then he’d run out of fuel and promptly get arrested by whatever constabulary had been chasing him. The sad part was that Jules figured out if he’d just gone two miles an hour faster, he’d likely have been successful in his attempt.”
James A. Owen, The Dragon's Apprentice

Terry Pratchett
“Belief is one of the most powerful organic forces in the multiverse. It may not be able to move mountains, exactly. But it can create someone who can.

People get exactly the wrong idea about belief. They think it works back to front. They think the sequence is, first object, then belief. In fact, it works the other way.”
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“For instance, if you come at four in the afternoon, I'll begin to be happy by three. The closer it gets to four, the happier I'll feel. By four I'll be excited and worried; I'll discover what it costs to be happy! But if you come at any od time, I'll never know when I should prepare my heart... There must be rites.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
