"188.

O homem vulgar, por mais dura que lhe seja a vida, tem ao menos a felicidade de a não pensar. Viver a vida decorrentemente, exteriormente, como um gato ou um cão — assim fazem os homens gerais, e assim se deve viver a vida para que possa contar a satisfação do gato e do cão.
Pensar é destruir. O próprio processo do pensamento o indica para o mesmo pensamento, porque pensar é decompor. Se os homens soubessem meditar no mistério da vida, se soubessem sentir as mil complexidades que espiam a alma em cada pormenor da ação, não agiriam nunca, não viveriam até. Matar-se-iam de assustados, como os que se suicidam para não ser guilhotinados no dia seguinte.”

Fernando Pessoa, Livro do Desassossego, por Bernardo Soares, Companhia das Letras, p. 199.

Today is what can literally be called a “grey day”. It’s 6:30 A.M. but the sun can not be seen, so we can’t tell what time it is. Could be eleven o’clock  or seventeen. Even could be 1999 and I am at school waiting for my father while I look to the sky and say, as I said now, “how beautiful is that!”. It all makes me think how frustrated are all these constant human changes, while the nature is so simple and remains almost the same.
