3. "(...) não custa atribuir a obstinada melancolia dos portugueses ao uso desregrado da palavra saudade, no fado, na poesia, no discurso dos filósofos e dos políticos. Seria interessante estudar o quanto o culto à saudade contrariou, vem contrariando, o esforço para desenvolver Portugal. Já a famosa arrogância e optimismo dos angolanos poderia dever-se à insistência em termos como bué («Angola kuia bué!»), futuro, esperança ou vitória. No que respeita à alegria dos brasileiros, poderíamos talvez imputá-la a duas ou três palavras fortes que acompanham desde há muito a construção e o crescimento do país: mulato/mulata, bunda, carnaval."

Today's Quote

[Donald] Keene observed [in a book entitled The Pleasures of Japanese Literature, 1988] that the Japanese sense of beauty has long sharply differed from its Western counterpart: it has been dominated by a love of irregularity rather than symmetry, the impermanent rather than the eternal and the simple rather than the ornate. The reason owes nothing to climate or genetics, added Keene, but is the result of the actions of writers, painters and theorists, who had actively shaped the sense of beauty of their nation.Contrary to the Romantic belief that we each settle naturally on a fitting idea of beauty, it seems that our visual and emotional faculties in fact need constant external guidance to help them decide what they should take note of and appreciate. 'Culture' is the word we have assigned to the force that assists us in identifying which of our many sensations we should focus on and apportion value to."
Author: Alain De Botton
