“...e estava livre como um passarinho. Não daqueles que estão em gaiolas. Os outros.”
Rui Zink, Um romance

“Uma vez, numa escola de província, a professora de História lembrou-se de perguntar aos alunos o que queriam ser quando fossem grandes.
Todos responderam coisas excelentes, taisw como advogados, médicos, accionistas da Texas Oil. Apenas o pequeno Norman, o abstruso da classe, declarou com suavidade que queria ser outra coisa: empregado de escritório.
(O que muito chocou a professora e lautas gargalhadas proporcionou aos colegas.)
Hoje são todos empregados de escritório, excepto Norman Mailer, que já na altura sabia que os nossos desejos nunca se realizam.”
Rui Zink, Hotel Lusitano

“A leitura é para uma pessoa o mesmo que voar é para um pássaro. Primeiro, aprende-se a bater as asas, com a ajuda dos pássaros mais velhos, depois voa-se sozinho...”
