"Ali, onde o mar quebra, num cachãoRugidor e monótono, e os ventoserguem pelo areal os seus lamentos,Ali se há-de enterrar meu coração.Queimem-no os sóis da adusta solidãoNa fornalha do Estio, em dias lentos;Depois, no Inverno, os sopros violentosLhe revolvam em torno o árido chão…Até que se desfaça e, já tornadoEm impalpável pó, seja levadoNos turbilhões que o vento levanter…Com suas lutas, seu cans ado anseio,Seu louco amor, dissolva-se no seioDesse infecundity, desse amargo mar!"

Stephen King Quotes

"Sometimes shed go a whole day without thinking of him or missing him. Why not? She had quite a full life, and really, hed often been hard to deal with and hard to live with. A project, the Yankee oldtimers like her very own Dad might have said. And then sometimes a day would come, a gray one (or a sunny one) when she missed him so fiercely she felt empty, not a woman at all anymore but just a dead tree filled with cold November blow. She felt like that now, felt like hollering his name and hollering him home, and her heart turned sick with the thought of the years ahead and she wondered what good love was if it came to this, to even ten seconds of feeling like this."

Maria Del Pilar Montes De Oca Quotes

"El mexicano es, quizá, el único pueblo del mundo al que le gusta comer con dolor. Sí: dolor, porque, aun cuando nuestro gusto adquirido hace que, benévolamente, lo llamemos acrimonia, sazón o picorcito, lo que sentimos es dolor."

Mark Haskell Smith Quotes

"The fact that, in the United States, there are people serving ten-year prison terms for growing marijuana plants in their backyards while Wall Street racketeers, who have defrauded millions of people and destroyed the global economy, walk free is a kind of bizarre hypocrisy that boggles my mind."

James Robertson Quotes

Quotes About Luxury Handbags

"But for me, dinner at a fine restaurant was the ultimate luxury. It was the very height of civilization. For what was civilization but the intellects ascendancy out of the doldrums of necessity (shelter, sustenance and survival) into the ether of the finely superfluous (poetry, handbags and haute cuisine)? So removed from daily life was the whole experience that when all was rotten to the core, a fine dinner could revive the spirits. If and when I had twenty dollars left to my name, I was going to invest it right here in an elegant hour that couldnt be hocked." - Author: Amor Towles

Quotes About Lobo

"¡Los ángeles del sexo! Son maravillosos precisamente por lo mucho que sorprenden, por lo mucho que cambian. Tú por ejemplo, con tu aspecto de que nunca te han tocado, puedo imaginarte mordiendo y arañando. Estoy seguro que te cambiaría hasta la voz. He visto cambiar tanto... Hay voces de mujer que suenan como ecos poéticos y sobrenaturales. Luego, cambian. Los ojos cambian. Creo que todas esas leyendas sobre personas que por la noche se transforman en animales -como la historia del hombre lobo, por ejemplo- fueron inventadas por hombres que vieron transformarse por la noche a las mujeres, a las criaturas idealizadas y veneradas, en animales, y las creyeron endemoniadas." - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Old Wines

"Weve been told that with regard to seduction, "candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker," but in truth, rather, properly selected: "candy makes randy; liquor makes desire flicker"; or, as Shakespeares porter said to Macduff: "[drink] provokes the desire but it takes away the performance." The wines and beers of antiquity, however, which were potent infusions of innumerable psychoactive plants, often requiring dilution with water and in which alcohol served rather as preservative then inebriating active principle." - Author: Rick Doblin

Quotes About Good Omens

"It just wasnt supposed to end like this." She looks at me with red-rimmed eyes and yellow skin. Colors should be a good thing, but now, theyre marks, omens of bad tidings. "I was supposed to grow up, go to college, get a job," she continues in that gut-clenching croak. "Meet my dream guy, marry, have k-kids. You were going to live next door and we would grow old in the same nursing home. Chuck oatmeal at each other and watch soap operas all day in our rocking chairs. That was my daydream. My perfect life. I dont want to keep asking myself why until the end, but … " A lone tear trails down her sunken cheek. This time I dont reach out to wipe the water away; I let it go. Down, down, until it drips off the side of her jaw. This is humanity. This is life and death in one room." - Author: Kelsey Sutton
