“Now the reason why I do not feel at the present moment so far from
you is that I remember your Ways and Manners and actions. I know your manner of thinking, your manner of feeling. I know what shape your joy or your sorrow would take; I know the manner of your walking, standing, sauntering, sitting down, laughing, punning, and every action so truly that you seem near to me.”
“Why is it? Why are we all so tongue-tied and spellbound? Why do we perhaps live three streets off and yet never meet? Where is the intimacy? Where is the warmth? I think human beings are fundamentally crashed by a sense of their insignificance. I am perpetually overwhelmed by realizations of this kind. And nothing matters - nothing I say, feel, or think, truly makes a difference.”
“— Como é amar?
— É a coisa mais maravilhosa e terrível que pode acontecer com você. Você sabe que encontrou algo incrível e quer levá-lo para sempre consigo. E um segundo depois de ter aquilo, você fica com medo de perder.”
