Fernando Pessoa

13 Jun 1888 // 30 Nov 1935

Into the life of no man has the mystery of the world entered so much. So familiarly, might I say. The mystery of the world finds not alone my thought, but my feeling also.

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
