Joao Ricardo Pedro Quotes

"Dona Laura, ao ver a casa encher-se de bocas - e pressentido que isso de golpes de Estado era coisa para levar o seu tempo -, apressou-se, de faca e alguidar, em direcção às capoeiras, donde regressou com as duas primeiras vítimas da revolução. E ainda não tinha soado as duas da tarde quando, num exercício ostensivo de poder, como se quisesse deixar bem claro o que quer que estivesse a acontecer no País, ali em casa tudo permanecia na mesma, desligou o rádio e a televisão, abriu as portadas que davam para o jardim e anunciou que a canja estava na mesa."

Quotes About Our Saviour

Quotes About Breathing Fresh Air

"Toddlers were running the place like some miniature version of Lord of the Flies, complete with weapons made from blocks and tinker toys. One of them came at me, charging my knees and the pink pod that held my precious baby. I screamed and made a run for the front door, flip-flops sticking to squelchy dried puddles of juice. I let out a relieved sigh when we were outside breathing fresh air. The near-deafening roar of the highway was a lark song compared to the screeching wed just escaped." - Author: Piper Vaughn
