Reinaldo Arenas | The Parade Ends / La parata è finita

Cammino lungo strade sprofondate,
per le fogne che si disfano
davanti a edifici che devi schivare,
perchè ti cadrebbero addosso,
davanti a facce torve che ti scrutano e ti giudicano,
davanti a negozi chiusi,
mercati chiusi,

Anthony de Mello: "La prova dell’amore è il sacrificio.."

Pensate forse di aiutare le persone perché ne siete innamorate?
Ebbene, devo darvi una notizia.
Non si è mai innamorati di qualcuno.
Si è soltanto innamorati della idea che ci si è fatti di una data persona, un’idea preconcetta e dettata dalla speranza.

Fermatevi a pensarci un minuto: non siete mai innamorati di qualcuno, siete innamorati della vostra idea preconcetta riguardo a quella persona.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky: La bellezza salverà il mondo! / The beauty will save the world!

"Ama la vita più della sua logica, solo allora ne capirai il senso".
"A volte l’uomo è straordinariamente, appassionatamente innamorato della sofferenza".
"Colui che mente a se stesso e dà ascolto alla propria menzogna arriva al punto di non saper distinguere la verità né dentro se stesso, né intorno a sé e, quindi, perde il rispetto per se stesso e per gli altri".
"Oggi c’è più ricchezza ma meno forza; nessuna idea sa unire i cuori: tutto è rilasciato, rammollito, sfatto. Tutti noi, tutti noi siamo sfatti!".
"[Da una lettera al fratello Michail] Che m'importa la gloria, quando io scrivo per il pane?"
