Descartes (Discours de la méthode)

Two elderly women are at a Catskill Mountain resort. And one of them says: “Boy, the food in this place is really terrible”. The other one says: “Yeah, I know. And such small portions."

Avec le temps...
Avec le temps, va tout s'en va

(David Tynan O'Mahoney) 


Dans un monde qui s'écroule sous le poids de la rentabilité, envahi par les sirènes ravageuses de la Techno-science, la voracité du pouvoir, par la mondialisation nouvel esclavage au delà de tout celà, l'Amitié, l'Amour existent.

A câmara será cada vez mais pequena, cada vez mais pronta a registar imagens efémeras e secretas, cujo choque paralisa o mecanismo de associação do observador. Nessa altura será de usar a legenda, com a qual a fotografia engloba a literatização de todas as relações vitais, e sem a qual a fotografia estagnaria no                          indefinido. (Kleine Geschichte                        der Photographie), 1931. 

 Walter Benjamin 


Nous ne sommes nous qu'aux yeux des autres et c'est à partir du regard des autres que nous nous assumons comme nous-mêmes

Il est beaucoup plus facile pour un philosophe d'expliquer un nouveau
concept à un autre philosophe qu'à un enfant. Pourquoi ? Parce que l'enfant pose les vraies questions.


 Jean-Paul Sartre


A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.


Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships.

L'oubli est un puissant instrument d'adaptation à la réalité parce qu'il détruit peu à peu en nous le passé survivant qui est en constante contradiction avec elle.
(À la recherche du temps perdu)                                                                                                                

 Marcel Proust

There have been many definitions of hell, but for the English the best definition is that it is the place where the Germans are the police, the Swedish are the comedians, the Italians are the defense force, Frenchmen dig the roads, the Belgians are the pop singers, the Spanish run the railways, the Turks cook the food, the Irish are the waiters, the Greeks run the government, and the common language is Dutch.

David Frost

Rien n'est jamais acquis à l'homme. Ni sa force
Ni sa faiblesse ni son cœur.
Et quand il croit
Ouvrir ses bras son ombre est celle d'une croix
Et quand il croit serrer son bonheur il le broie
                       Sa vie est un étrange et                        douloureux  divorce
                       Il n'y a pas d'amour heureux

Un beau soir l'avenir s'appelle passé. C'est alors qu'on se tourne et qu'on voit sa jeunesse.

Marche juste à côté de moi et sois mon ami.

you're busy making other plans.

El amor nace de un flechazo; la amistad del intercambio frecuente y prolongado.


La poesía debe ser un poco seca para que arda bien, y de este modo iluminarnos y calentarnos.

 
 Octavio Paz



I define nothing. Not beauty, not patriotism. I take each thing as it is, without prior rules about what it should be.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

  Bob Dylan (
Robert Allen Zimmerman)


Un libro es una cosa entre las cosas, un volumen perdido entre
los volúmenes que pueblan el indiferente universo; hasta que da con su lector, con el hombre destinado a sus signos. 

    
 Jorge Luis Borges

 





He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.

A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing


Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.

O uísque é o melhor amigo do homem, ele é o cachorro engarrafado.

A vida é a arte do encontro, embora haja tanto desencontro pela vida.

When women go wrong, men go right after them!

When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.

It's not the man in your life that counts. It's the life in your man.

 Fernando Pessoa



Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so.


Men are born ignorant, not stupid; they are made stupid by education.

Sei que pareço um ladrão...
Mas há muitos que eu conheço
Que, sem parecer o que são,
São aquilo que eu pareço.

I drink therefore I am.

It was a woman who drove me to drink. I never had the courtesy to thank her.

I exercise strong self control. I never drink anything stronger than gin before breakfast.
 
 W. C. Fields



Je ne cherche pas, je trouve.

L'art est un mensonge qui nous permet de dévoiler la vérité. 

Les ordinateurs sont inutiles. Ils ne savent que donner des réponses.

El más terrible de todos los sentimientos es el sentimiento de tener la esperanza muerta.

Desechad tristezas y melancolías. La vida es amable, tiene pocos días y tan sólo ahora la hemos de gozar.

How do you do Nothing? asked Pooh. 
Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, `What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?' and you say, ´Oh, nothing' and then you go and do it. It means just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.

 Winnie the Pooh


La propriété, c'est le vol
(Etude sur le principe du droit et du gouvernement )

Le flux du discours est toujours en raison directe de la pauvreté de la pensée

 Anatole France
(Jacques Anatole Thibault)

   


If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?
