    Miguel Torga
    “Não tenhas medo, ouve:
    É um poema
    Um misto de oração e de feitiço...
    Sem qualquer compromisso,
    Ouve-o atentamente,
    De coração lavado.
    Poderás decorá-lo
    E rezá-lo
    Ao deitar
    Ao levantar,
    Ou nas restantes horas de tristeza.
    Na segura certeza
    De que mal não te faz.
    E pode acontecer que te dê paz...”

    Patrick Ness
    “Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary. And your mind will punish you for believing both.”
    Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

  • #13
    Patrick Ness
    Because humans are complicated beasts, the monster said. How can a queen be both a good witch and a bad witch? How can a prince be a murderer and a saviour? How can an apothecary be evil-tempered but right-thinking? How can a parson be wrong-thinking but good-hearted? How can invisible men make themselves more lonely by being seen?

    "I don't know," Connor shrugged, exhausted. "Your stories never made any sense to me."

    The answer is that it does not matter what you think, the monster said, because your mind will contradict itself a hundred times each day. You wanted her to go at the same time you were desperate for me to save her. Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary. And your mind will punish you for believing both.
    Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

    Patrick Ness
    There was once an invisible man who had grown tired of being unseen. It was not that he was actually invisible. It was that people had become used to not seeing him.

    And if no one sees you, are you really there at all?"

    Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

    Patrick Ness
    But what is a dream, Conor O'Malley? the monster said, bending down so it's face was close to Conor's. Who is to say that it is not everything else that is the dream?
    Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

  • #16
    Patrick Ness
    “The justifications of men who kill should always be heard with skepticism, said the monster.”

    Patrick Ness
    “Because I'm not blind to how Harry works, you know," she said. "A bully with charisma and top marks is still a bully." She sighed, annoyed. "He'll probably end up Prime Minister one day. God help us all.”

    José Luís Peixoto
    “na hora de pôr a mesa, éramos cinco:
    o meu pai, a minha mãe, as minhas irmãs
    e eu. depois, a minha irmã mais velha
    casou-se. depois, a minha irmã mais nova
    casou-se. depois, o meu pai morreu. hoje,
    na hora de pôr a mesa, somos cinco,
    menos a minha irmã mais velha que está
    na casa dela, menos a minha irmã mais
    nova que está na casa dela, menos o meu
    pai, menos a minha mãe viúva. cada um
    deles é um lugar vazio nesta mesa onde
    como sozinho. mas irão estar sempre aqui.
    na hora de pôr a mesa, seremos sempre cinco.
    enquanto um de nós estiver vivo, seremos
    sempre cinco”
    José Luis Peixoto

    Judith Merkle Riley
    “Há qualquer coisa de libertador associada à perda de tudo. Primeiro chora-se, depois fica-se atordoado; em seguida enumera-se aquilo que se perdeu e reflecte-se sobre a dureza do futuro, pensando que nunca conseguiremos obter outras coisas como aquelas que desapareceram. Finalmente, depois de tudo isso, sente-se uma estranha leveza. Sem as coisas que sempre tivemos, passamos a ser outra pessoa, qualquer pessoa, ninguém. É uma sensação esquisita, como a de estarmos embriagados, abandonando-nos à embriaguez. (..) De repente senti-me capaz de qualquer coisa, por muito arrojada que fosse.”
    Judith Merkle Riley , The Serpent Garden

    José Saramago
    “Dizem que o tempo sara todas as feridas. Talvez seja verdade. Mas há feridas que parecem não sarar. Sangram, vertem pus, voltam a sangrar, surpreendem-nos a magoar a alma quando esta já deveria estar habituada e imune a tanta dor. É certo que, às vezes, essas feridas acalmam, como as marés que recolhem a água e recuam para o mar alto; mas, tal como as marés, regressam depois, revigoradas, pujantes, invadindo de novo a praia e fazendo sentir o fulgor da sua presença, o ímpeto do seu regresso.”
    José Saramago

    “Meeting your soul mate is like walking into a house you've been in before - you will recognize the furniture, the pictures on the wall, the books on the shelves, the contents of drawers: You could find your way around in the dark if you had to.”
    Jandy Nelson, I'll Give You the Sun
