Florbela Espanca Quotes

"Lagrimas ocultas Lagrimas ocultasSe me ponho a cismar em outras erasEm que ri e cantei, em que era qrida,Parece-me que foi noutras esferas,Parece-me que foi numa outra vida...E a minha triste boca doloridaQue dantes tinha o rir das Primaveras,Esbate as linhas graves e severasE cai num abandono de esquecida!E fico, pensativa, olhando o vago...Toma a brandura plácida dum lagoO meu rosto de monja de marfim...E as lágrimas que choro, branca e calma,Ninguém as vê brotar dentro da alma!Ninguém as vê cair dentro de mim!"

Quotes About Gods Goodness

"The Gnostics (also called Manichees) postulated that there were two gods -- the Christian God of goodness and light, and an evil anti-God of darkness. This theory proved an easy explanation of why there was evil in the world. It was rejected by Catholic Christianity in favor of the monotheistic view that there was one God who created only goodness. Evil was sin, a rebellious falling-away from God, a perversion of His goodness. This was the foundation of the evolving Christian concept of Satan." - Author: Norman F. Cantor

Quotes About Mayans

"Evidence indicates that cats were first tamed in Egypt. The Egyptians stored grain, which attracted rodents, which attracted cats. (No evidence that such a thing happened with the Mayans, though a number of wild cats are native to the area.) I dont think this is accurate. It is certainly not the whole story. Cats didnt start as mousers. Weasels and snakes and dogs are more efficient as rodent-control agents. I postulate that cats started as psychic companions, as Familiars, and have never deviated from this function." - Author: William S. Burroughs
