• i took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart: i am, i am, i am
  • que vontade de chorar pelos mendigos! / que vontade de voltar para a fazenda! / por que deixam um menino que Ă© do mato / amar o mar com tanta violĂȘncia?
  • you say 'amateur' as if it was a dirty word. 'amateur' comes from the latin word 'amare', which means to love. to do things for the love of it.
  • do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. do justly, now. love mercy, now. walk humbly now. you are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.
  • suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. 'be still', they say. 'watch and listen. you are the result of the love of thousands'.
  • i am forever chained to myself; that's what i am, and that's what i must try to live with.
  • we are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
