'This is blasphemy, sinful and evil'.

Donald L. Hicks

I consider a dream like I consider a shadow,” answered Caeiro, with his usual divine, unexpected promptitude. “A shadow is real, but it’s less real than a rock. A dream is real - if it weren’t, it wouldn’t be a dream - but less real than a thing. That’s what being real is like.

He should be happy because he can think about the unhappiness of others!

Or a trunk not having iron bands!

Alberto Caeiro

Something changed in part of reality - my knees and my hands.
What science has knowledge for this?
The blind man goes on his way and I don’t make any more gestures.
It’s already not the same time, or the same people, or anything the same.
This is being real.

Henry James
