The world in words

Tudo o que amamos profundamente converte-se em parte de nós mesmos.
Helen Keller

A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.

 W.H. Auden (via feellng)

Uma mente com perguntas é uma mente aberta ao entendimento.

—O resgate do tigre (via trechos-e-textos)

'Well,' said Pooh, 'what I like best,' and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

—A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh (via quoted-books)

There are four directions: North, South, East, and West. We are going in the fifth direction, which is the direction of stories.

—Sean Taylor, A Waste of Good Paper (via feellng)

O “quase” é uma coisa que machuca muito. Um quase amor, uma quase amizade, um quase sorriso, uma quase história. Uma série de coisas que “quase” deram certo, mas que somente deixaram uma lembrança fragmentada na memória.

João Pedro Bueno, Sabedorias.   (via quoteario)

People are so different, so fascinating, each in his or her own specific world, waiting to crash into and effect another. Waiting to discover things about themselves, little details and preferences to build an identity out of. The secret identities are the finest, the most difficult to ever fully know. But the fulfillment is so intense, so beautiful. More puzzles, more individual pieces to fit.

—Vee Hoffman, Acclamation  (via quoted-books)

Eu só ameaço ir embora, você me conhece. Dois minutos depois eu estaria querendo você de volta.

Back at her, stupid. (via quoteario)
