“A Educação é a arma mais poderosa que podes usar para mudar o Mundo.”

George Bernard Shaw

 

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”

Bernard Shaw

 

“Uma vida passada a cometer erros é não apenas mais honrada, mas mais útil do que aquela passada sem nada fazer.”

Bernard Shaw

Mia Couto

A viagem não começa quando se percorrem distâncias, mas quando se atravessam as nossas fronteiras interiores. A viagem acontece quando acordamos fora do corpo, longe do último lugar onde podemos ter casa.
[…] A viagem termina quando encerramos as nossas fronteiras interiores. Regressamos a nós, não a um lugar.

Mia Couto, O Outro Pé da Sereia

Foi lançado este Domingo, pela HBO, o teaser da 6ª temporada…

A sexta temporada de A Guerra dos Tronos estreia nos Estados Unidos a 24 de Abril. E para já a HBO divulgou o teaser, uma curta provocação de pouco menos de um minuto para estimular a curiosidade (e alimentar a ansiedade) dos fãs, que dificilmente atravessaram o inverno sem esta série de culto.

Tudo se passa na Sala dos Rostos, onde, conhecida a fúria homicida do autor em relação aos seus personagens, desfilam e se recuperam vários deles, entretanto desaparecidos, como Robb Stark, Catelyn Stark e Joffrey Baratheon, e que pronunciam frases chave: ao rosto de Jon Snow, que conclui a 5ª temporada à beira da morte, é associada a declaração terrível:

 

“A longa noite está a chegar e com ela vêm os mortos”,

anunciado a vinda de Os Outros, seres fantásticos que se julgavam extintos e se situam para lá da Muralha.

Ou ainda, com a face de Ned Stark em grande plano, ouve-se uma afirmação que tinha surgido logo no início da saga

 

“O homem que dá a sentença deve brandir a espada”

é pronunciada no momento em que cortou a cabeça a um foragido.

Os bons heróis de George R. R. Martin não deixavam por conta dos outros o que tinha de ser feito, não se escondiam por detrás dos seus lacaios. Outros tempos…

 

 

[Asking for background information about Howard Hunt]

Bob Woodward: It’s just profile information, mostly. We know, for example, that he works for Mullen and Company, or did work for Mullen and Company, as a writer. He’s also a novelist; we know that he works in the office of Charles Colson at the White House…

Bennett: …and the CIA.

Bob Woodward: And the CIA.

Bennett: Well, if you’re conducting that kind of investigation, certainly it comes as no surprise to you that Howard was with the CIA.

Bob Woodward: No, no surprise at all.

 

 

Francis Underwood: “Such a waste of talent. He chose money over power. In this town, a mistake nearly everyone makes. Money is the Mc-mansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries. I cannot respect someone who doesn’t see the difference”.

 

“This isn´t a trial, it´s a hunt”

 

Cam Brady: [on answering machine] “Hey Shana. It’s congressman Cam Brady here. I just stepped away from a family dinner to tell you I wish I wasn’t eating fried steak. I wish I was eating Shana pussy. Seriously, baby, you get me so hard my dick presses against my zipper and it hurts like a motherfucker. What else? Oh, hey, I got your parents tickets to The Producers. And, oh, yeah, let’s do something crazy weird next time like lick each other’s buttholes in a Denny’s bathroom. All right, I gotta go. Cam Brady in ‘012”.

 

“Ambition seduces. Power corrupts.

Is This Man Our Next President?”

 

 

Harvey Milk: [Voice Over, Last lines] I ask this… If there should be an assassination, I would hope that five, ten, one hundred, a thousand would rise. I would like to see every gay lawyer, every gay architect come out – – If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door… And that’s all. I ask for the movement to continue. Because it’s not about personal gain, not about ego, not about power… it’s about the “us’s” out there. Not only gays, but the Blacks, the Asians, the disabled, the seniors, the us’s. Without hope, the us’s give up – I know you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. So you, and you, and you… You gotta give em’ hope… you gotta give em’ hope.

 

Olivia Pope: It’s handled.

 

David Frost: Are you really saying the President can do something illegal?

Richard Nixon: I’m saying that when the President does it, it’s *not* illegal!

David Frost: …I’m sorry?

 

Attention…Attention… Dear Listeners, The Dictatorship has fallen.
The President, has run away from the airportin a govermental limousine”.

 

[Edgar looks out his balcony window at the newly elected President Richard Nixon, who drives down the crowded street of American citizens]

J. Edgar Hoover: [narrating] When morals decline and good men do nothing, evil flourishes. Every citizen has a duty to learn of this that threatens his home, his children. A society uninterested and unwilling to learn from the past is doomed. We must never forget our history. We must never lower our guard. Even today, there are organizations that have America as their prime target. They would destroy the safety and the happiness of every individual and thrust us into a condition of lawlessness, immorality that passes the imagination.
