"Those who truly suffer don't form a group or go around as a mob. Those who suffer, suffer alone."

"I've surrounded the garden of my being with high iron gratings--more imposing than any stone wall--in such a way that I can perfectly see others while perfectly excluding them, keeping them in their place as other. To discover ways of not acting has been my main concern in life. I refuse to submit to the state or to men."

"By thinking so much, I became echo and abyss. By delving within, I made myself into many."

"I bowed out of life before it began. I'm never where I feel I am, and if I seek myself, I don't know whos seeking me. My boredom with everything has numbed me. I feel banished from my soul. I observe myself. I'm my own spectator."

"So great is the tedium, so sovereign my horror of being alive, that I can't conceive of anything that might serve as palliative, antidote, balsam or distraction for it. Sleeping horrifies me the way everything does. Dying is as horrifying as everything else. Going and stopping are the same impossible thing. Hope and doubt are equally cold and grey. I'm a shelf of empty jars."

- Fernando Pessoa
