"For its not worth to fulfill heroic acts, go around the world in a boat, winning the Nobel Prize, reinventing the wheel, 
unless we have a place to go back where someone is waiting for us with a soup and a smile. "
Rosa Lobato de Faria

And Cry

"Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby."
Langston Hughes

Price to Fly

"The sun is heavy and the light is easy. I go on the sidewalk close to the wall but I can't fit the shadow. The shadow is a narrow ribbon. 
I dive the hand in the shadow as if plunged into the water."
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen


"The habit of falling hardens the body, reaching the ground, 
to in itself, is a relief."
José Saramago
