time and place to be …

“time is a powerful force. It transforms our preferences. It reshapes our values. It alters our personalities. We seem to appreciate this fact, but only in retrospect. Only when we look backwards do we realize how much change happens in a decade. It’s as if, for most of us, the present is a magic time. It’s a watershed on the timeline. It’s the moment at which we finally become ourselves. Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they’re finished. The person you are right now is as transient, as fleeting and as temporary as all the people you’ve ever been. The one constant in our life is change.”
Dan Gilbert, The psychology of your future self

Hiromi, Place to be


….”  Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal, which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom. Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega. An end in itself.”, Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

“- Abrace-me porque é o último abraço que me dá”

(…)

– Abrace-me porque talvez não seja o último abraço que me dá.”

(…)

“Muito boa tarde a todos e até já, mesmo que seja o último abraço que damos.”

(…)

“E pode afigurar-se estranho mas ainda o trago na pele. Durante quanto tempo vou ficar com ele tatuado? ”

Antonio Lobo Antunes, Cronicas
