Marcel Proust

Não chegamos a mudar as coisas conforme o nosso desejo, mas aos poucos o nosso desejo muda.

Walter D'Oxaguiã

Quando cobramos muito de alguém paramos de cobrar de nós mesmos coisas banais, como se amar, planejar, se sentir vivo. Há momentos em que precisamos olhar nossa vida como fazemos com a dos outros.

Paulinho Moska - Admito que Perdi

Se você não suporta mais tanta realidade
Se tudo tanto faz, nada tem finalidade
Então pra quê viver comigo?

Meu corpo vai sobreviver mesmo estando ferido
E até na hora de morrer eu não vou me dar por vencido
Porque sei que meus perdões vão estar bem ao lado dos teus

Olhei pro amanhã e não gostei do que vi
Sonhos são como deuses
Quando não se acredita neles, deixam de existir
Lutei por sua alma, mas admito que perdi

Mart'nália - Sem Dizer Adeus

Eu
Chorei até ficar debaixo d’água
Submerso por você
Gritei até perder o ar
Que eu já nem tinha pra sobreviver (Eu andei...)

Eu
Andei até chegar no último lugar
Pisado por alguém
Só pra poder provar
O que era estar depois do final do além (Eu andei...)

E cheguei exatamente onde algum dia
Você disse que partia pra nunca mais voltar
E eu já estava lá a te esperar sem dizer adeus

Eu
Fiquei sozinho até pensar
Que estar sozinho é achar que tem alguém

Já me esqueci do que não fiz
O que farei pra te esquecer também?
Se eu não sei o nome do que sinto
Não tem nome que domine o meu querer
Não vou voltar atrás
O chão sumiu a cada passo que eu dei (Eu andei...)

Caetano Veloso - Dom de Iludir

Não me venha falar na malícia de toda mulher
Cada um sabe a dor e a delícia de ser o que é

Não me olhe como se a polícia andasse atrás de mim
Cale a boca e não cale na boca notícia ruim

Você sabe explicar, você sabe entender tudo bem
Você está, você é, você faz, você quer, você tem

Você diz a verdade, a verdade é o seu dom de iludir
Como pode querer que a mulher vá viver sem mentir...

Maria Gadú - Mais que a mim

Eu chorei sem disfarçar
quando vi seu carro passar
Vi todo o amor que em mim ainda não passou
Eu já não sei bem aonde vou
Mas agora eu vou.

Tentei falar mas você não soube ouvir
Tente adimitir!
Tentei voltar e pude ver o quanto errei
Te amei mais que a mim, bem mais que a mim.

Ke$ha - Backstabber

Got around, now look here what we all found out
(look here what we found, look here we all found out)
That you have got a set of loose lips, twisting stories
All because you're jealous

Now I know exactly what you're all about (so this is what you're all about)

Girl, you're such a backstabber
Oh girl, you're such a shit talker
And everybody knows it (everybody knows it)

Girl, you're such a backstabber
Run your mouth more than anyone I've ever known
And everybody knows it (everybody knows it)

Arnaldo Antunes - Invejoso

O carro do vizinho é muito mais possante e aquela mulher dele é tão interessante
Por isso ele parece muito mais potente, sua casa foi pintada recentemente

E quando encontra o seu colega de trabalho só pensa em quanto deve ser o seu salário
Queria ter a secretária do patrão, mas sua conta bancária já chegou no chão

Na hora do almoço vai pra lanchonete, tomar seu copo d'água e comer um croquete
Enquanto imagina aquele restaurante aonde os outros devem estar nesse instante

Invejoso, querer o que é dos outros é o seu gozo
E fica remoendo até o osso, mas sua fruta só lhe dá caroço

Invejoso, o bem alheio é o seu desgosto
Queria um palácio suntuoso, mas acabou no fundo desse poço

Depois você caminha até a academia sem automóvel e também sem companhia
Queria ter o corpo um pouco mais sarado como aquele rapaz que malha do seu lado

E se envergonha de sua própria namorada achando que os amigos vão fazer piada
Queria uma mulher daquelas de revista, uma aeromoça, uma recepcionista

E quando chega em casa lig…

Cesare Pavese

Um dos prazeres humanos menos observados é o de preparar acontecimentos à distância, de organizar um grupo de acontecimentos que tenham uma construção, uma lógica, um começo e um fim. Este é quase sempre apercebido como um acme sentimental, uma alegre ou lisonjeira crise de conhecimento de si próprio. Isto aplica-se tanto à construção de uma resposta pronta como à de uma vida. E o que é isto, senão a premissa da arte de narrar? A arte narrativa apazigua precisamente esse gosto profundo.
O prazer de narrar e de escutar é o de ver os factos serem dispostos segundo aquele gráfico. A meio de uma narrativa volta-se às premissas e tem-se o prazer de encontrar razões, chaves, motivações causais. Que outra coisa fazemos quando pensamos no nosso próprio passado e nos comprazemos em reconhecer os sinais do presente ou do futuro? Esta construção dá, em substância, um significado ao tempo. E o narrar é, em suma, apenas um meio de o transformar em mito, de lhe fugir.

Em O Ofício de Viver

John West - Loved You Tonight

We could just be, we could just breathe, maybe wait and see,
but in the meantime...
Would you mind if I told you I loved you tonight?
'Cause it seems when you're close to me... It's gonna be alright.

Emily Giffin

When you’re in love, sometimes you have to swallow your pride, and sometimes you have to keep your pride. It’s a balance. But when the relationship is right, you find the balance.

Em Something Borrowed

David Sedaris

I haven't the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

Em Naked

O Brinde de Casamento mais criativo do mundo - Amy e Brad

hahahahaha demais!!!

Emprego Certo - Massagista de Modelos

ninguém nunca tá feliz com o que tem, né... hahahaha

Comercial Coca-Cola - Receita para a Crise

"Já vivi 102 anos e te garanto que a única coisa de que você não vai gostar na vida é que ela vai te parecer muito curta" :-)

Emily Giffin

Maybe that's what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.

Em Love the One You're With

Flight Facilities - Crave You

Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I stare at you.
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
One moment I have you the next you are gone.
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage,
The boy's got my heart in a silver cage.
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I... crave you.
do site do Perez Hilton

Douglas Adams

There's always a moment when you start to fall out of love, whether it's with a person or an idea or a cause, even if it's one you only narrate to yourself years after the event: a tiny thing, a wrong word, a false note, which means that things can never be quite the same again.

Em The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time

André Gide

A experiência ensina mais seguramente que o conselho.

Bertrand Russel

Nada é tão fatigante como a indecisão e nada é tão fútil.

John Tolkien

Atrás de uma esquina pode estar à espera um novo caminho ou uma porta secreta.

Golda Meir

Os que não sabem chorar com todo o seu coração tampouco sabem rir.

Van Morrison - Days Like This

MusicPlaylist at MixPod.com

When it is not always raining - there will be days like this
When there's no one complaining - there will be days like this
When everything falls into place, like the flick of a switch
Well, my mama told me, there will be days like this

When you don't need to worry - there will be days like this
When no one's in a hurry - there will be days like this
When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they fit
Then I must remember there will be days like this

When you do not need an answer there will be days like this
When you do not meet a chancer there will be days like this
When you do not get betrayed by that old Judas kiss
I just have to remember there will be days like this

When everyone is up front & they are not playing tricks
When you do not have no freeloaders out to get their kicks
When it's nobody's business the way that you want to live
Oh, my mama told me, there will be days like this

When no one steps on my dreams - there will be days …

Simone Weil

Do not allow yourself to be imprisoned by any affection. Keep your solitude. The day if it ever comes when you are given true affection there will be no opposition between interior solitude and friendship, quite the reverse. It is even by this infallible sign that you will recognize it.

Julie Buxbaum

Here's what I know: I eat mass quantities of red meat, curse religiously, sing out of tune but with conviction. I cry when it suits me, laugh when it's inopportune, read The New York Times obituaries and wedding announcements, out loud and in that order.

Em The Opposite of Love

Nelson Rodrigues

O ser humano é cego para os próprios defeitos. Jamais um vilão do cinema mudo proclamou-se vilão. Nem o idiota se diz idiota. Os defeitos existem dentro de nós, ativos e militantes, mas inconfessos. Nunca vi um sujeito vir à boca de cena e anunciar, de testa erguida: 'Senhoras e senhores, eu sou um canalha'.

Álvares de Azevedo

Em negócios de amor, nada de sócios.

Citado na Revista da Academia Brasileira de Letras, p.281

Clarice Lispector

Que ninguém se engane: só se consegue a simplicidade através de muito trabalho.
Em A Paixão Segundo G.H.

Caio Fernando Abreu

Amor não resiste a tudo, não. Amor é jardim. Amor enche de erva daninha. Amizade também, todas as formas de amor.

Em Carta a Jaqueline Cantore

Miguel Souza Tavares

A liberdade não consiste em fazer tudo o que se quer, quando isso agride os outros. Mesmo que aquilo que agride os outros seja, para nós, perfeitamente aceitável. Só os ignorantes é que acham que a liberdade é fácil de gerir.

Aluísio Azevedo

Tudo mais, que aprendemos de ouvido ou que aprendemos nos livros, se evapora com o tempo e desaparece; só essas lições, que nos entraram pelos olhos e nos espalharam nalma as suas raízes, só essas conservaremos por toda a vida e levaremos conosco para a sepultura.

Em Girândola de Amores

Henri J.M. Nouwen

Forgiveness is the name of love practiced among people who love poorly. The hard truth is that all people love poorly. We need to forgive and be forgiven every day, every hour increasinly. That is the great work of love among the fellowship of the weak that is the human family.

Shana Abé

I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want… a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep and wake knowing my heart is safe. I want to love and be loved.

Louis de Bernières

Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Em Captain Corelli's Mandolin

Gabrielle Zevin

You forget all of it anyway... You forget who was cool and who was not, who was pretty, smart, athletic, and not... You forget all of them. Even the ones you said you loved, and even the ones you actually did. They’re the last to go. And then once you’ve forgotten enough, you love someone else.

Em Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

Ayn Rand

I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.

Em Atlas Shrugged

Elizabeth Gilbert

If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will protect upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.

Jerry Spinelli

Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don’t rent them out to tomorrow. Do you know what you’re doing when you spend a moment wondering how things are going to turn out with Perry?

You’re cheating yourself out of today. Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention, but you’re stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain. You wake up the next morning and that today you wasted is gone forever. It’s now yesterday. Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you , but now you’ll never know.

Em Love, Stargirl

André Gide

It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you are not.

Desmond Tutu

Forgiving is not forgetting; its actually remembering - remembering and not using your right to hit back. It's a second chance for a new beginning. And the remembering part is particularly important. Especially if you dont want to repeat what happened.

Ray Bradbury

"You're a hopeless romantic," said Faber. "It would be funny if it were not serious. It's not books you need, it's some of the things that once were in books. [...] Of course you couldn't know this, of course you still can't understand what i mean when i say all this. You are intuitively right, that's what counts".

Em Fahrenheit 451

Kim Gruenenfelder

'Love is never having to say you’re sorry'. What a crock. Love is constantly saying you’re sorry, even when you know damn well you’re right.

Em A Total Waste of Makeup

Will Rogers

When you find yourself in a hole, quit digging.

Luanne Rice

Love is the easiest thing there is. It's the layers of doubt, fear, and expectation that make it complicated.

Em Beach Girls

Revolutionary Road

If being crazy is living life the way it's meant to be lived, then I don't care if we're completely insane.

Joseph Heller

What a lousy earth! He wondered how many people were destitute that same night even in his own prosperous country, how many homes were shanties, how many husbands were drunk and wives socked, and how many children were bullied, abused, or abandoned. How many families hungered for food they could not afford to buy? How many hearts were broken? How many suicides would take place that same night, how many people would go insane? How many cockroaches and landlords would triumph? How many winners were losers, successes failures, and rich men poor men? How many wise guys were stupid? How many happy endings were unhappy endings? How many honest men were liars, brave men cowards, loyal men traitors, how many sainted men were corrupt, how many people in positions of trust had sold their souls to bodyguards, how many had never had souls? How many straight-and-narrow paths were crooked paths? How many best families were worst families and how many good people were bad people? When you added them…

Will Rogers

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggie!' until you can find a rock.

Peter Kreeft

America does not know the difference between money and sex. It treats sex like money because it treats sex as a medium of exchange, and it treats money like sex because it expects its money to get pregnant and reproduce.

Em How to Win the Culture War: A Christian Battle Plan for a Society in Crisis.

Martin Luther King Jr

Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole in order to preserve the best in their individual societies. This call for a worldwide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one's tribe, race, class, and nation is in reality a call for an all-embracing and unconditional love for all mankind.

Marcel Proust

Há males de que não se deve buscar a cura, porque só eles nos protegem contra males mais graves.

Desmond Tutu

Forgiving and being reconciled to our enemies or our loved ones are not about pretending that things are other than they are.
It is not about patting one another on the back and turning a blind eye to the wrong.
True reconciliation exposes the awfulness, the abuse, the hurt, the truth - it could even sometimes make things worse.
It is a risky undertaking but in the end it is worthwhile, because in the end only an honest confrontation with reality can bring real healing.
Superficial reconciliation can bring only superficial healing.

-

Perdoar e nos reconciliar com nossos inimigos ou nossos entes queridos não é questão de fingir que as coisas são diferentes do que são.
Não se trata de dar tapinhas nas costas uns dos outros e de fechar os olhos para o que está errado.
A verdadeira reconciliação expõe o horror, o abuso, a mágoa, a verdade - pode até mesmo piorar as coisas de vez em quando.
É um trabalho arriscado, mas no final vale a pena, porque no fim só um confronto honesto com a realidade pode…

Kent Keith

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere, people my deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealeous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Em Have Faith Anyway: The Vision of Habakkuk for Our Times

Garrison Keillor

Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

It is always the false that makes you suffer, the false desires and fears, the false values and ideas, the false relationships between people. Abandon the false and you are free of pain; truth makes happiness, truth liberates.

C.S. Lewis

If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.

Robert A. Heinlein

When in danger or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.
:)

Neil Gaiman

Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.

Em The Sandman Vol. 05: A Game of You.

Jim Butcher

We still hadn't learned, though, that growing up is all about getting hurt. And then getting over it. You hurt. You recover. You move on. Odds are pretty good you're just going to get hurt again. But each time, you learn something.

Each time, you come out of it a little stronger, and at some point you realize that there are more flavors of pain than coffee. There's the little empty pain of leaving something behind - graduating, taking the next step forward, walking out of something familiar and safe into the unknown. There's the big, whirling pain of life upending all of your plans and expectations. There's the sharp little pains of failure, and the more obscure aches of successes that didn't give you what you thought they would. There are the vicious, stabbing pains of hopes being torn up. The sweet little pains of finding others, giving them your love, and taking joy in their life as they grow and learn. There's the steady pain of empathy that you shrug of…

Neil Gaiman

I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.

Glenn Clark

If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.
