Life will break you.

Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning.

You have to love.

You have to feel.

It is the reason you are here on earth.

You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up.

And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness.

Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.“

Louise Erdrich

“Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in you or the world, that one song stays the same, just like that moment. Which is pretty amazing, when you actually think about it.”

"Pixie is an 18-year-old singer who, refreshingly, sings as an 18-year-old. Hers is a fresh, expressive, fun and free attitude with a vocal style to match."

Que voz! Em duas palavras:

U au!

I go mental every time you leave for work

You never seem to know when to stop

I never know when you'll return

I'm in love with a robot

In the night, call you up and

Wanna know when you're coming home

Don't deny me, call me back

I'm so alone


In the night, wait up for you

Even though you don't want me to

Go to bed, leave the lights on

What's the use


So you want to understand me

You just see what you want to see

There's no way I can help you out

You don't know what it's all about


Fell asleep again in front of MTV

God, I'm down at the bottom

No-one's singing songs for me

I can't wait for tomorrow

When you're gone and rain starts falling

I just sit here by the phone

Don't deny me, call me back

I'm so alone

Oh, when you gonna come home?

Oooooh I just gotta know

When you gonna come home?



Baby I can't stand it when you go to work

You never seem to know when to stop

I never know when you'll return

I'm in love with a robot

In the night, call you up and

Wanna know when you're coming home

Don't deny me, call me back

I'm so alone

O Destino de 7 Princesas Disney

Branca de Neve






Capuchinho Vermelho

Bela Adormecida



Dina Goldstein

"These works place Fairy Tale characters in modern day scenarios. In all of the images the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. The '...happily ever after' is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues."

“Life is both sad and solemn. We are let into a wonderful world, we meet one another here, greet each other—and wander together for a brief moment. Then we lose each other and disappear as suddenly and unreasonably as we arrived”

Electrolux Futuristic Dining Table With Refrigerator and Appliances






(Click image to enlarge)


The Form:

- A circular five-seater table with retractable chairs that fit flush with the frame of the table when not in use.
- A part of the table used to refrigerate food and is divided into 2 separate sections with a total volume capacity of 203 liters.
- At the touch of a button, the black glass top becomes transparent allowing a complete view of the fridge contents beneath it.
- The food is stored in bins where it is divided into groups (dairy products, smoked meat, vegetables, fruits etc).
- This is where a rotating storage compartment is located with a volume capacity of 98 liters, designed to store small groceries.
- The second part of the refrigerator is integrated into the center of the table and chills your bottles.
- The shelves of the bottle fridge feature punched with holes minimizing the escape of cold air when the refrigerator is lifted. This section has a volume capacity of 105 liters.
- Two buttons help you to use this second fridge: One for Pulling up the fridge, the other for rotating the stand for easy selection.
- Small appliances are located inside a stainless steel inter-circular compartment that is manually rotatable and can store up to 8 different electrical appliances. These appliances are easily replaceable.
- The appliances integrated include a mini-dishwasher, toaster, coffee machine, boiling kettle, cold water dispenser, a freezer, mini-microwave and cutlery holder.
- The top layer of the table is a touch display screen, allowing access to the internet. It displays daily press (newspaper, magazines), allows search for recipes and enables communications.
- The table top display can be changed to accommodate soothing views or even fun games.

The Systems Used:

- Touch OLED display screens that change from complete shade of black to fully transparent to expose content of the refrigerator.
- Nanotechnology surface (for better cleaning).
- Pneumatic system (pistons for hoisting electrical appliance), servomotors and electronics.
- The materials used are glass, plastic (or synthetic stone) and stainless steel.
- The table is securely anchored to the floor and connected to a source of electricity, water supply, the internet and the waste.

When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin.

You see only the essence of the person, not the shell.

That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart.

And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant. "

"If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labour.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions"

"Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.“

Vê que o meu coração ainda salta
Quer e julga ser capaz
Não o faça por meus medos
Faça nos dedos
E eu fico para ver o que ele faz
Sem imaginar o que eu não fiz
À espera de viver

“ Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path. No one wants their life thrown into chaos.


That is why a lot of people keep that threat under control, and are somehow capable of sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are the engineers of the superseded.


Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all their problems. They make the other person responsible for their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness.


They are either euphoric because something marvelous has happened or depressed because something unexpected has just ruined everything.


Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it - which of these two attitudes is the least destructive? I don’t know."




Não faço ideia quem estou a citar  (Paulo Coelho?) mas seja quem seja falou muito bem e colocou uma questão interessante....que atitude tomamos quando nos apaixonamos? Qual das duas acima descritas é a melhor?

Pessoalmente revejo-me nas duas por um lado tento manter o auto-controle...pelo outro muitas vezes deixo-me ir na "euforia"...acho que teve muito a ver com a minha maturidade na ocasiã bem que julgo-me mais "controlado" com o passar dos anos e às tantas um destes dias parece um puto de novo...

Talvez nunca tenha responsabilizado a outra parte pelo meu bem ou mal-estar mas penso que já fui vitima disso...

E tu, mantens a calma na paixão ou rendes-te cegamente a ela?

“It is a curious sensation: the sort of pain that goes mercifully beyond our powers of feeling. When your heart is broken, your boats are burned: nothing matters any more.

It is the end of happiness and the beginning of peace.”

George Bernard Shaw

“Most people treat the present moment as if it were an obstacle that they need to overcome. Since the present moment is Life itself, it is an insane way to live.”
