Dez romances preferidos

Perguntaram a vários escritores. Aqui vão os meus.

Todo grande romance é cósmico: ele parte da especificidade das situações cotidianas e, a partir delas, abraça a totalidade da existência.

Primeiro, cinco romances simplesmente perfeitos:

Moby Dick (EUA, 1851), de Herman Melville
Miseráveis (França, 1862), de Victor Hugo
Guerra e paz (Rússia, 1867), de Liev Tolstoi
Grande sertão: veredas (Brasil, 1956), Read more of this blog post »

Atenção. by Alex Castro
"Um livro essencial, que vai virar de cabeceira, para revisitar e refletir sempre a respeito. Sem rodeios e com escrita sucinta, provocativa e precisa, o autor nos conduz por 20 práticas objetivas, guiadas pelos preceitos zen-budistas para atenção ple" Read more of this review »
Atenção. by Alex Castro
"Muito bom livro, trazendo 20 práticas de atenção e exercícios de olhar interno, sempre com uma visão de ruptura, de incômodo. Embora resvale na auto ajuda e traga alguns conceitos zen budistas difíceis para não adeptos, traz ideias necessárias."
Alex Castro and 1 other person liked Ronaldo Lima's review of Atenção.:
Atenção. by Alex Castro
"Textos que são sempre bons de reler pois sempre te relembram a dar o primeiro passo, fazer algo, se mover em uma nova direção.

E tantas vezes eu falhei nisso. E tantas vezes eu tentei de novo. E provavelmente vai ser uma vida tentando dar esses passos" Read more of this review »

“Eu, por exemplo, bem acho que deus pode existir. Não vejo irracionalidade ou improbabilidade alguma em o big bang ter sido acionado por uma mão divina ou que uma mão divina tenha criado as espécies animais e os planetas, etc. A grande questão é outra: por que deveria eu viver de forma diferente só porque o universo foi criado por um ser divino e não por forças cósmicas aleatórias?”
Alex Castro, Liberal, Libertário, Libertino

“The simple truth is that most people aren’t out to get you. We are so bad at spotting deception because it’s better for us to be more trusting. Trust, and not adeptness at spotting deception, is the more evolutionarily beneficial path.”
Maria Konnikova, The Confidence Game: Why We Fall for It . . . Every Time

“The Unknown sometimes holds surprises for the spirit of man. A sudden rent in the veil of darkness will momentarily reveal the invisible and then close up again. Such visions sometimes have a transfiguring effect, turning a camel driver into a Mohammed, a goat girl into a Joan of Arc. Solitude brings out a certain amount of sublime exaltation.”
Victor Hugo, The Toilers of the Sea

“It was a lodging for the kind of people who have no permanent lodging. In all towns, and particularly in seaports, there is always to be found, below the general population, a residue. Lawless characters—so lawless that even the law sometimes cannot get its hands on them—pickers and stealers, tricksters living by their wits, chemists of villainy continually brewing up life in their crucibles; rags of every kind and every way of wearing them; withered fruits of roguery, bankrupt existences, consciences that have declared themselves insolvent; the incompetents of breaking and entering (for the big men of burglary are above all this); journeymen and journeywomen of evil, rascals both male and female; scruples in tatters and out at elbow; scoundrels who have sunk into poverty, evildoers who have had little reward from their work, losers in the social duel, devourers who now go hungry, the low earners of crime, beggars and villains: such are the people who form this residue. Human intelligence is to be found here, but it is bestial. This is the rubbish heap of souls, piled up in a corner and swept from time to time by the broom that is called a police raid. La Jacressarde was a corner of this kind in Saint-Malo.”
Victor Hugo, The Toilers of the Sea

“Dissimulation is an act of violence against yourself. A man hates those to whom he lies.”
Victor Hugo, The Toilers of the Sea

“Happiness and despair do not breathe the same air. A man in despair participates in the life of others from a great distance; he is almost unaware of their presence; he has lost any consciousness of his own existence; he is a thing of flesh and blood but feels that he is no longer real; he sees himself only as a dream.”
Victor Hugo, The Toilers of the Sea
