[Desafiam] 52 semanas - #4 As minhas citações preferidas

por Carla B., em 25.04.15

Ora para esta semana socorri-me do Goodreads, que é uma plataforma jeitosa não só para manter as leituras em dia como para manter as citações organizadas.

 

"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."

C.S. Lewis

 

"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"

J.K. Rowling

 

"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."

Jorge Luis Borges

 

"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."

Neil Gaiman

 

"Imóvel sobre a mesa, a ampulheta assinalava o movimento incessante do mundo."

João Paulo Oliveira e Costa

 

Okay, já estão 5 e esta para citação é demasiado grande mas não podia deixar de colocar aqui...

 

"I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine. I can hardly write. I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. Too good, too excellent creature! You do us justice, indeed. You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in F. W.

I must go, uncertain of my fate; but I shall return hither, or follow your party, as soon as possible. A word, a look, will be enough to decide whether I enter your father's house this evening or never."

Jane Austen
