Favorite Afundar Quotes

1. "À glória que surge rapidamente, deve-se acrescentar também a falsa, ou melhor, a glória artificialmente produzida de uma obra, seja por louvor indevido, bons amigos, críticos corrompidos, indicações de superiores e acordos entre inferiores ou pela corretamente suposta incapacidade das massas de julgar. Assemelha-se às boias, com as quais um corpo pesado consegue flutuar na água. Elas carregam-no por mais ou menos tempo, conforme estejam bem cheias e vedadas. No entanto, de qualquer modo o ar vai saindo pouco á pouco e o corpo acaba por se afundar."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

Quotes About Afundar

Today's Quote

At schools, the children who are too stupid or lazy to learn languages, mathematics and elementary science can be set to doing the things that children used to do in their spare time. Let them, for example, make mud pies and call it modelling. But all the time there must be no faintest hint that they are inferior to the children who are at work. Whatever nonsense they are engaged in must have—I believe the English already use the phrase—"parity of esteem." An even more drastic scheme is not impossible. Children who are fit to proceed to a higher class may be artificially kept back, because the others would get a trauma—Beelzebub, what a useful word!—by being left behind. The bright pupil thus remains democratically fettered to his own age group throughout his school career, and a boy who would be capable of tackling Aeschylus or Dante sits listening to his coeval's attempts to spell out 'A Cat Sat On A Mat'."
Author: C.S. Lewis
