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 Beginning A New Life

"Henceforth the crisis of urbanism is all the more concretely a social and political one, even though today no force born of traditional politics is any longer capable of dealing with it. Medico-sociological banalities on the pathology of housing projects, the emotional isolation of people who must live in them, or the development of certain extreme reactions of rejection, chiefly among youth, simply betray the fact that modern capitalism, the bureaucratic society of consumption, is here and there beginning to shape its own setting. This society, with its new towns, is building the terrain that accurately represents it, combining the conditions most suitable for its proper functioning, while at the same time translating in space, in the clear language of organization of everyday life, its fundamental principle of alienation and constraint. It is likewise here that the new aspects of its crisis will be manifested with the greatest clarity." - Author: Tom McDonough
