The world in words

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

'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.

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
