    Pessoa, Fernando

    Fernando Pessoa.

    “For those few like me who live without knowing how to have life, what’s left but renunciation as our way and contemplation as our destiny? Neither knowing nor able to know what religious life is, since faith isn’t acquired through reason, and unable to have faith in or even react to the abstract notion of man, we’re left with the aesthetic contemplation of life as our reason for having a soul. Impassive to the solemnity of any and all worlds, indifferent to the divine, and disdainers of what is human, we uselessly surrender ourselves to pointless sensation, cultivated in a refined Epicureanism, as befits our cerebral nerves.”
