quotes: bleak/off beat (41 person items)

""wise is he who enjoys the show offered by the world." "today i suddenly experienced an absurd but quiet valid sensation. i realized, in an intimate lightning flash, that i am no one. no one, absolutely no one." "could it think, the heart would stop beating." "man shouldn’t be able to see his own face — there’s nothing more sinister. nature gave him the gift of not being able to see it, and of not being able to stare into his own eyes. only in the water of rivers and ponds could he look"

"“Having seen how lucidly and logically certain madmen justify their lunatic ideas to themselves and to others, I can never again be sure of the lucidness of my lucidity” “What we see is not made up of what we are seeing but rather from what we are.” “The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret ov"

""Sonhe com as estrelas, apenas sonhe, elas só podem brilhar no céu. Não tente deter o vento, ele precisa correr por toda parte, ele tem pressa de chegar, sabe-se lá aonde. As lágrimas? Não as seque, elas precisam correr na minha, na sua, em todas as faces. O sorriso! Esse você deve segurar, não o deixe ir embora, agarre-o! Persiga um sonho, mas, não o deixe viver sozinho. Alimente a sua alma com amor, cure as suas feridas com carinho. Descubra-se todos os dias, deixe-se levar pelas vont"

Authors with Mental Illnesses (23 person items)

""More often than bipolar (yes maybe he was moody, well heck he was a poet!)" people suggest Fernando Pessoa had multiple personality disorder (a theory dismissed by many)... Pessoa had several heteronyms (many, with the three fully developed Alberto Caeiro, Álvaro de Campos e Ricardo Reis being the most famous ones), with different writing styles and preferences, different personalities, birth dates, professions, etc. That alone doesn't say much, as it could be only in writing, to freely expres"

"O sonhador não é superior ao homem ativo porque o sonho seja superior à realidade. A superioridade do sonhador consiste em que sonhar é muito mais prático que viver, e em que o sonhador extrai da vida um prazer muito mais vasto e muito mais variado do que o homem de ação. Em melhores e muito mais diretas palavras, o sonhador é que é o homem de ação. Sendo a vida essencialmente um estado mental, e tudo, quanto fazemos ou pensamos, válido para nós na proporção em que o pensamos vál"
