“When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it.
I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone.
Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are.
Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.”
Murakami, H., in Sputnik Sweetheart

True elegance for me is the
manifestation of an independent mind.
Rossellini, I.

“My heart is lost; 
the beasts have eaten it.”
Baudelaire, C. (1821-1867),  in Les Fleurs du Mal

"Sou feliz só por preguiça. 
A infelicidade dá uma trabalheira" 
Mia Couto
