Italo Svevo
“Misunderstanding women is a clear sign of scant virility. ”
Italo Svevo, Zeno's Conscience

Adlai E. Stevenson II
“Change is inevitable. Change for the better is a full time job.”
Adlai Stevenson

Eça de Queirós
“Politicians and diapers should be changed frequently, and for the same reason.”
Eça de Queirós

Malcolm Lowry
“How, unless you drink as I do, could you hope to understand the beauty of an old Indian woman playing dominoes with a chicken?”
Malcolm Lowry, Under the Volcano

Eça de Queirós
“É extraordinário! Neste abençoado país todos os políticos têm «imenso talento». A oposição confessa sempre que os ministros, que ela cobre de injúrias, tem, à parte os disparates que fazem, um «talento de primeira ordem»! Por outro lado a maioria admite que a oposição, a quem ela contantemente recrimina pelos disparates que fez, está cheia de «robustíssimos talentos»! De resto todo o mundo concorda que o país é uma choldra. E resulta portanto este facto supracómico: um país governado «com imenso talento», que é de todos na Europa, segundo o consenso unânime, o mais estùpidamente governado! Eu proponho isto, a ver: que, como os talentos sempre falham, se experimentem uma vez os imbecis!”
Eça de Queirós, Os Maias
