After all, seasons change.

So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones You love are always in your heart. And if u're very lucky, a plane ride away*

Nem tudo o que nos ata nos pode prender.

'(...)A coisa só está resolvida quando o teu coração encher outra vez. É como uma garrafa de sumo: só deixa de saber a sumo quando tiver outro sabor mais forte lá dentro..'

'Aproveita o sabor, nunca mais vais querer outro'.

'At some point, you have to make a decision.

Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular!'*

[in Grey's Anatomy]


Tenho para mim que não devemos nunca dizer mal ou alimentar e expressar ressentimentos (públicos ou privados)sobre alguém com quem partilhámos a nossa vida (relações amorosas, mais especificamente).

Ao fazê-lo, estamos, pura e simplesmente, a dizer mal de nós mesmos: se repararmos, houve uma parte de nós que se identificou com essa mesma pessoa e, 'a outra parte' do que somos, resulta também [quer queiramos, quer não!] duma obra e influência das vivências que tivémos com ela.

[That's the point!*]

And sometimes, despite all your best intentions, fate wins anyway.

The mexican [III].

Leroy: Don't you love him?
Samantha: I think that's the problem. We love each other too much.

The mexican [II].

Samantha: Real emotion transcends language Jerry. You don't have to understand their words to feel their pain.

The mexican.

Samantha: I have to ask you a question. It's a good one so think about it. If two people love each other, but they just can't seem to get it together, when do you get to that point of enough is enough?
Jerry: Never.

may not make the world spin, but that's what makes the ride worth it'.

Das escolhas.

'Ok, here it is, your choice.. it’s simple, her or me, and i’m sure she’s really great. But Derek, i love you, in a really, really big pretend to like your taste on music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me'*

[in Grey's Anatomy]

'I count the number of words that have passed between us.

not very many. But I think about it'.

It's not brave if you're not scared.

'Talvez seja uma mulher fora do meu tempo.

porque continuo a esperar das relações amorosas um espírito de compromisso e de continuidade que já não reconheço nos outros...'

[mas é como dizia o outro: 'when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue?! It rather denotes a lack of courage!']

I know, for sure.

Who i am. How much i worth. What i need. What i want to give.
What i want for me and.. what i don't really really want.

'At the end of the day,

there are some things you just can't help but talk about. Some things we just don't want to hear, and some things we say because we can't be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say. They're what you do. Some things you say because you have no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves'*

[in Grey's Anatomy]

'Could you show me dear,

something I've not seen? Something infinitely interesting..?'

[Could you?!]

Some things are true whether you believe in them or not.

É justo, isso.

I'll give you anything you ask for - as long as it's not something I don't want to give.

O perigo e o prazer.

muitas vezes, andam de mãos dadas.

Curses only have power when you believe them.

[Porque todas as situações nos remetem para alguma outra, nossa*]

ALEX: "You kissed me right? You kissed me and ever since, you've been avoiding me."
ADDISON: "Alex."
ALEX: "No, you've been avoiding me because you just assumed I want you. Or you just expect that everyone you look at sideways is pining after you, right? Has it even occurred to you that maybe I'm not interested?"
ADDISON: "You're not interested?"
ALEX: "You think I wanna be just another intern sleeping an attending?"
ADDISON: "You kissed me back."
ALEX: "You're my boss. I mean, what did you expect me to do? Look, Sloan's had me changing bandages all day, and I would way rather be scrubbing in one of your surgeries. And if you keep avoiding me, I don't get to scrub in, so stop avoiding me. [pauses] Look, it happened. But it doesn't have to happen again.

[in Grey's Anatomy]

Tell me quando, quando, quando...

Trincamos sempre o caroço.

mas já nao saboreamos a cereja.

"Don't stop moving,

you must keep on going;
Don't you stop believing, you should go on dreaming;
Don't stop moving, you must keep on going;
Don't you stop believing,'Cause it's people like you make the world go..."

When it's real.

When it's right. Don't let anything stand in your way.

You can be anywhere when your life begins.

When the future opens up in front of you. And you may not even realize it at first, but it's already happening.

Sometimes you have to do the wrong thing.

Sometimes you have to make a big mistake to figure out how to make things right. The stakes are painful. But they're the only way to find out who you really are. I know who I am now. And I know what I want.

[in Grey's Anatomy]

There are moments.

Moments that in a split second your life changes forever, and before you know it... you're somewhere else'.

[in Grey's Anatomy]


são aquelas coisas assustadoras que vemos quando afastamos os olhos do alvo.

'The early bird catches the worm.

a stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we haven't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to ‘seize the day'. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves like Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying'.

[in Grey's Anatomy]

She is everything you need that never knew you wanted.

She is everything you want that never knew you needed.

I'm not lying.

i'm writing fiction with my mouth.

Walk the Line.

Johnny Cash: I think it's about time, June.
June Carter: Time for what?
Johnny Cash: For you and me... to get married.
June Carter: Go to sleep, John.

Johnny Cash: You know what your problem is, June Carter? You are afraid to be in love, you are afraid of losing control, And you know what June Carter, I think you are afraid of livin' in my big fat shadow.
June Carter: Oh really? Is that what my problem is?
Johnny Cash: Yes.
June Carter: My problem is that it's 2 A.M. My problem is I'm asleep. I'm on a tour bus with eight stinkin' men. Rule number one: Don't propose to a girl on a bus, you got that? Rule number two: Don't tell her it's because you had a bad dream.
Johnny Cash: June.
June Carter: What?
Johnny Cash: Marry me.
[June glares]
Johnny Cash: Ok... Ok fine... but that's the last time i'm asking...
June Carter: Well, good. I hate reruns.

Johnny Cash: I want to marry you and I am telling you it's the time.
June Carter: Well I'm telling you with 100 percent certainty that it is not the time. It's not about time, it's not the right time, it's not even quarter to the right time.

Johnny Cash: You've got me all revved up. Now I've asked you forty different ways and it's time you come up with a fresh answer.
June Carter: Please sing.
Johnny Cash: I'm asking you to marry me. I love you, June. Now I know I said and done a lotta things, that I hurt you, but I promise, I'll never do that again. I only want to take care of you. I will not leave you like that dutch boy with your finger in the dam.
June Carter: [shakes head]
Johnny Cash: You're my best friend. Marry me.
June Carter: [quietly] All right.
Johnny Cash: Yeah?


is a four syllable word for "Here's my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy". It's both desired&feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without. Intimacy also comes attached to the three R's -relatives, romance, and roommates. There are some things you can't escape. And other things you just don't want to know.

Este blogue.

é autobiográfico., aqui. Em palavras e sentires meus e de outros, que consigo sentir e tocar como se de partes minhas se tratassem. É, por tantas vezes, um pedir emprestado.

[Os sentimentos e as emoções são sempre maiores do que a nossa capacidade de os verbalizarmos. É nítido, isso.]

Dentro de nós há o problema do ou e e.

Às vezes gostávamos que as coisas cá dentro fossem ou brancas ou pretas e os sentimentos estivessem, no coração, separados segundo as suas cores em gavetas diferentes. A vida seria muito mais simples. O problema é que, no coração, vem tudo misturado e cheio de es. Há coisas que parecem boas e são más, enquanto que outras parecem más e são boas. Uma pessoa, se não tem cuidado, engana-se.
Foi este o problema do Adão e Eva: a maçã era má e parecia boa. Ainda gostava, um dia, de conhecer o LABORATÓRIO DAS TENTAÇÕES, onde se inventa esta trapalhada toda. Se percebesse melhor o truque dos es talvez começasse a ser capaz de distrinçar os ous.
Não sei de onde vem esta agitação que nos atacou o coração e nos deixa como baratas tontas, sempre à procura da metade que não temos e do sítio onde não estamos. Há quem diga que é feitiço. Acho que, antes de nascermos, alguém nos segredou baixinho que é possível sermos totalmente felizes. E acho que este segredo bom é a culpa de que não nos contentarmos nunca com o que já alcançámos e querermos sempre mais.

[Nuno Tovar de Lemos in O Príncipe e a Lavadeira]
Só é grande quem se encaixa no pequeno por amor.

Não me arrependo dos momentos em que sofri.

Carrego as minhas cicatrizes como se fossem medalhas.

A man does not fight because he hates what is in front of him,

but because he loves what's behind him'.


Just because you can't see something or someone,

it doesn't mean they aren't there.

O mundo é redondo.

Por isso aquilo que às vezes nos pode parecer o fim é afinal o princípio.

Closer [IV].

Dan: At six, we stand round the computer and read the next day's page, make final changes, put in a few euphemisms to amuse ourselves...
Alice: Such as?
Dan: "He was a convivial fellow" - meaning he was an alcoholic. "He valued his privacy" - gay. "He enjoyed his privacy" - raging queen.
Alice: What would my euphemism be?
Dan: She was... disarming.
Alice: That's not a euphemism.
Dan: Yes, it is.

Closer [III].

Alice: Where is this love? I can't see it, I can't touch it. I can't feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words, but I can't do anything with your easy words.

Closer [II].

Dan: And you left him, just like that?
Alice: It's the only way to leave. "I don't love you anymore. Goodbye."
Dan: Supposing you do still love them?
Alice: You don't leave.
Dan: You've never left someone you still love?
Alice: Nope.

Até ao lavar dos cestos.

Ainda é vindima.

As we grow up.

we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will.
You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time.
You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.
You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.
You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Don't be afraid that your life will end,
be afraid that it will never begin.

[Obrigada, M.]


Dan: I fell in love.
Alice: Oh, as if you had no choice? There's a moment, there's always a moment, "I can do this, I can give into this, or I can resist it", and I don't know when your moment was, but I bet you there was one.

Everything is a version of something else.

'The thing about plans.

is they don't take into account the unexpected, so when we're thrown a curve ball, whether its in the O.R. or in life, we have to improvise. Of course, some of us are better at it than others. Some of us just have to move on to plan B, and make the best of it. And sometimes what we want is exactly what we need. But sometimes, sometimes what we need is a new plan.'

[in Grey's Anatomy]


Gosto de ti como quem gosta do sábado,
Gosto de ti como quem abraça o fogo,
Gosto de ti como quem vence o espaço,
Como quem abre o regaço,
Como quem salta o vazio,
Gosto de ti como quem mata o degredo,
Gosto de ti como quem finta o futuro,
Gosto de ti como quem diz não ter medo,
Como quem mente em segredo,
Como quem baila na estrada,
Gosto de ti como uma estrela no dia,
Gosto de ti quando uma nuvem começa,
Gosto de ti quando o teu corpo pedia,
Quando nas mãos me ardia,
Como silêncio na guerra,
Beijos de luz e de terra,
E num passado imperfeito,
Um fogo farto no peito
E um mundo longe de nós.

Enquanto não há amanhã,
Ilumina-me, Ilumina-me.
Enquanto não há amanhã,
Ilumina-me, Ilumina-me.

'Devolve-me a capacidade de respirar, prometo fazer-te nascer asas novas.'

'At the end of a day like this.

when so many prayers are answered and so many aren’t, we take our miracles where we find them. We reach across the gap and sometimes, against all odds, against all logic, we touch'.

[in Grey's Anatomy]

'Thank you.

you made my mind up for me when you started to ignore me.
Do you see a single tear? It isn't gonna happen here.
If you're over me, I'm already over you. If you wanna walk, I'm a step ahead. If you're moving on, I'm already gone.
Haven't you heard that I'm gonna be okay?'

we don’t like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change or we get left behind. And it hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn’t is lying. But heres the truth: the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Oh, sometimes, change is ... everything.

[in Grey's Anatomy]

Forgive and forget.

That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, old scores are never settled… old wounds never heal. And the most we can hope for, is that one day we’ll be lucky enough to forget.

[in Grey's Anatomy]

Não há segurança maior.

do que a certeza das coisas que são ditas sem palavras.

Verdade, verdadinha [II].

'A determinada altura da minha vida o meu maior luxo passou a ser a minha consciência. o deitar a cabeça na almofada e adormecer sem fantasmas a corroerem-me o espírito e a roubarem-me o sono. passou a sê-lo quando percebi os esqueletos que uns e outros guardam no armário e que nunca mais os conseguem libertar, mesmo sendo pesos mortos com os quais podem não viver.

a culpa e o erro que pesam a consciência parecem-me castigos suficientes para as almas errantes e pecadores num nível bem mais terrenos que religioso. parece-me tudo'

[Por Soinico, in]

Verdade, verdadinha [I].

'Há prazos que se esgotam. humanos. de pele e osso. as relações humanas também têm prazos. continuar a consumi-las e ignorar a validade é um erro crasso. tenho para mim que esse consumo irresponsável e prolongado fere os orgãos responsáveis por esses laços, como o consumo exagerado de álcool o fígado. as consequências vivem-se diaramente, a cada consumo, para os próprios e para os que o rodeiam. a longo prazo podem vir a ser destruidoras'.

[Por Soinico, in]

Your Love.

As you leave me please would you close the door
and don't forget what I told you
Just 'cause you're right - that don't mean I'm wrong
Another shoulder to cry upon
I just wanna use your love tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight...

[A música de sempre. Para sempre.]

Um dia encho-te a casa de flores.

Hoje é o dia.


'It's not how you look, it's what you feel inside... I don't care when - I don't need to know why, 18 til I die - gonna be 18 til I die" ”

I didn't ask to be the princess, but if the crown fits...

[No matter what: My Heart is My Crown*]

'At the end of the day.

faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. It's like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it's not so important happy ever after, just that it's happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you , and once in a while people may even take your breath away.'

Penso que esse dia, um dia, pode chegar.
