Confined Love by John Donne

Confined Love Some man unworthy to be possessor Of old or new love, himself being false or weak, Thought his pain and shame would be lesser If on womankind he might his anger wreak, And thence a law did grow, One might but one man know; But are other creatures so? Are Sun, Moon, or Stars by law forbidden To smile where they list, or lend away their light? Are birds divorced, or are they chidden If they leave their mate, or lie abroad a-night? Beasts do no jointures lose Though they new lovers choose, But we are made worse than those. Who e'er rigged fair ship to lie in harbours And not to seek new lands, or not to deal withal? Or built fair houses, set trees, and arbors, Only to lock up, or else to let them fall? Good is not good unless A thousand it possess, But dost waste with greediness. John Donne

A Broken Appointment by Thomas Hardy

You did not come, And marching Time drew on, and wore me numb. Yet less for loss of your dear presence there Than that I thus found lacking in your make That high compassion which can overbear Reluctance for pure lovingkindness' sake Grieved I, when, as the hope-hour stroked its sum, You did not come. You love not me, And love alone can lend you loyalty; -I know and knew it. But, unto the store Of human deeds divine in all but name, Was it not worth a little hour or more To add yet this: Once you, a woman, came To soothe a time-torn man; even though it be You love not me. A Broken Appointment Thomas Hardy (1840-1928 / Dorchester / England)

Mist by Henry David Thoreau

Low-anchored cloud, Newfoundland air, Fountain head and source of rivers, Dew-cloth, dream drapery, And napkin spread by fays; Drifting meadow of the air, Where bloom the dasied banks and violets, And in whose fenny labyrinth The bittern booms and heron wades; Spirit of the lake and seas and rivers, Bear only purfumes and the scent Of healing herbs to just men's fields! Henry David Thoreau Mist Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862 / Boston / United States)

ACONTECIMENTOS: Jorge Luis Borges: "Los justos"

(via)
Los justos Un hombre que cultiva su jardín, como quería Voltaire. El que agradece que en la tierra haya música. El que descubre con placer una etimología. Dos empleados que en un café del Sur juegan un silencioso ajedrez. El ceramista que premedita un color y una forma. El tipógrafo que compone bien esta página, que tal vez no le agrada. Una mujer y un hombre que leen los tercetos finales de cierto canto. El que acaricia a un animal dormido. El que justifica o quiere justificar un mal que le han hecho. El que agradece que en la tierra haya Stevenson. El que prefiere que los otros tengan razón. Esas personas, que se ignoran, están salvando el mundo.

O Caderno de Saramago

Yemen Agosto 10, 2009 por José Saramago À escritora colombiana Laura Restrepo, nossa amiga pelo coração e pelas ideias, encarregou-a Médicos sem Fronteiras que viajasse ao Yemen para depois contar o que lá tivesse visto, ouvido e sentido. O relato dessa experiência foi agora publicado no “El País semanal”, uma reportagem impressionante como, em princípio, qualquer outra que se faça em África, mas que a arte de narrar de Laura, ao recusar, como é próprio da sua natureza de escritora, os efeitos emotivos de uma escrita que intencionalmente apelasse à sensibilidade do leitor, prefere expressar por uma obstinada procura de realidade directa ao alcance de poucos. As descrições da chegada dos barcos que vêm da Somália, sobrecarregados de fugitivos que esperam encontrar no Yemen a solução das dificuldades que os empurraram para o mar, são de uma rara eficácia informativa. Vêm neles os homens, as mulheres e as crianças do costume, mas Laura Restrepo não tarda a mostrar-nos como é possível falar de homens sem estar obrigado a falar das mulheres e das crianças que com eles vieram, mas que das crianças seria impossível falar se não se falasse também, e sobretudo, das mães que os trazem, às vezes ainda na barriga. As situações em que essas mulheres vão encontrar-se depois de desembarcarem no Yemen constituem um catálogo completo das humilhações morais e físicas a que estão sujeitas só pelo facto de terem nascido mulheres. Por trás de cada palavra escrita por Laura há lágrimas, gemidos e gritos que seriam capazes de nos tirar o sono se a nossa flexível consciência não se tivesse acomodado à ideia de que o mundo vai aonde querem os que o dominam e que para nós já será bastante cultivar o nosso quintal o melhor que soubermos, sem que tenhamos de preocupar-nos com o que se passa do outro lado do muro. Esta, sim, é a mais velha história do mundo. Ver vídeo da reportagem Publicado em O Caderno de Saramago | Comments Off

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson - Free eBook

end to it. But there was one curious circumstance. I had taken a loathing to my gentleman at first sight. So had the child's family, which was only natural. But the doctor's case was what struck me. He was the usual cut and dry apothecary, of no particular age and colour, with a strong Edinburgh accent and about as emotional as a bagpipe. Well, sir, he was like the rest of us; every time he looked at my prisoner, I saw that Sawbones turn sick and white with desire to kill him. I knew what was in his mind, just as he knew what was in mine; and killing being out of the question, we did the next best. We told the man we could and would make such a scandal out of this as should make his name stink from one end of London to the other. If he had any friends or any credit, we undertook that he should lose them. And all the time, as we were pitching it in red hot, we were keeping the women off him as best we could for they were as wild as harpies. I never saw a circle of such hateful faces; and there was th

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novella by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1886. London lawyer Utterson is driven to investigate Edward Hyde, the unlikely protégé of his friend Dr Henry Jekyll, suspecting the relationship to be founded on blackmail. The truth is worse than he could have imagined. Jekyll’s ‘full statement of the case’, the final chapter of the book, explores the idea of dual personality that led him to his experiments, and his inexorable and finally fatal descent into evil.
