“In the end, everything will be okay. If it's not okay, it's not yet the end. ~Fernando Sabino, translated from Portuguese”
Fernando Sabino

“De tudo, ficaram três coisas: a certeza de que ele estava sempre começando, a certeza de que era preciso continuar e a certeza de que seria interrompido antes de terminar. Fazer da interrupção um caminho novo. Fazer da queda um passo de dança, do medo uma escada, do sono uma ponte, da procura um encontro.”
Fernando Sabino, O Encontro Marcado

“O diabo desta vida é que entre cem caminhos temos que escolher apenas um, e viver com a nostalgia dos outros noventa e nove.”
Fernando Sabino
