Os finais felizes.

São histórias inacabadas.

Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.

Das (des)idealizações.

I... I used to make long speeches to you after you left. I used to talk to you all the time,
even though I was alone. I walked around for months talking to you. Now I don't know what
to say. It was easier when I just imagined you. I even imagined you talking back to me.
We'd have long conversations, the two of us.
lt was almost like you were there. I could hear you, I could see you, smell you.
I could hear your voice. Sometimes your voice would wake me up. It would wake me up
in the middle of the night, just like you were in the room with me. Then... it slowly faded.
I couldn't picture you anymore. I tried to talk out loud to you like I used to, but there was
nothing there. I couldn't hear you. Then... I just gave it up. Everything stopped.
You just... disappeared. And now I'm working here. I hear your voice all the time.
Every man has your voice.

Sobre mim.

Há mtas versões, mas a realidade está à vista.

New Year's.

'Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? It’s not on the calendar, it’s not a birthday, it’s not a new year. It’s an event, big or small, something that changes us. Ideally, that gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, a way of letting go of old habits, old memories. What's important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it's also important to remember that, amid all the crap, there are a few things worth holding on to.'

[Bom Ano 2008 para todos*]

Vanilla Sky.

David: Do you remember what you told me once? That every passing minute is a another chance to turn it all around.
Sofía: I'll find you again.
David: I'll see you in another life... when we are both cats.

Eu só quero cantar.

gozar e gastar da vida;
Eu só quero um cafuné, e cobertor de orelha fixo nesse inverno tão rígido,
Fingir que acredito em você...

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of.

You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

Nothing is so strong as gentleness.

Nothing is so gentle as real strength. *

Sou do tamanho do que vejo.

e não do tamanho da minha altura.

Sometimes all we want is a taste.

Other times there's no such thing as enough, the glass is bottomless... all we want is more.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas*

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of Love.

To look life in the face.

always, to look life in the face, and to know it for what it last, to love it for what it is, and then... to put it away.

Santa Claus:

I don't want something I need. I want something I want - something pretty*

No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.


It's the first thing we really learn in life. The funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking, the harder it becomes to know what to say. Or how to ask for what we really need.

[in Grey's Anatomy]

Querido Pai Natal:

Quero um coração novinho em folha pelo Natal.

[Dá para ser?!;)
É que este já está um pouco gasto..]

Asking too much.

i want somebody who sees the pointlessness
and still keeps their purpose in mind
i want somebody who has a tortured soul
some of the time
i want somebody who will either put out for me
or put me out of misery
or maybe just put it all to words
and make me go, you know
i never heard it put that way
make me say, what did you just say?

i want somebody who can hold my interest
hold it and never let it fall
someone who can flatten me with a kiss
that hits like a fist
or a sentence, that stops me like a brick wall
if you hear me talking
listen to what i'm not saying
if you hear me playing guitar
listen to what i'm not playing
and don't ask me to put words
to all the silences i wrote
don't ask me to put words
to all the spaces between notes
in fact if you have to ask, forget it
do and you'll regret it
i'm tired of being the interesting one
i'm tired of having fun for two
just lay yourself on the line
and i might lay myself down by you
but don't sit behind your eyes
and wait for me to surprise you
i want somebody who can make me
scream until it's funny
give me a run for my money
i want someone who can
twist me up in knots
tell me, for the woman who has everything
what have you got?
i want someone who's not afraid of me
or anyone else
in other words i want someone
who's not afraid of themself

do you think i'm asking too much?

[Ani Di Franco]

Tell me who admires and loves you.

and I will tell you who you are.

I can't even remember the last time we kissed. Because you never think the last time is the last time. You think you have forever, but you don't...!*

BADtime stories may come sweet dreams.

Back to you.

I'm so good at forgetting,
And i quit ever game I play
But forgive me, love
I can't turn and walk away... this way!*

Life's too short for you to give in.

So fight. You go and fight for what's yours.

Jerry Maguire.

Ray: D'you know that the human head weighs 8 pounds?
Jerry Maguire: Did you know that Troy Aikman, in only six years, has passed for 16,303 yards?
Ray: D'you know that bees and dogs can smell fear?
Jerry Maguire: Did you know that the career record for hits is 4,256 by Pete Rose who is NOT in the Hall of Fame?
Ray: D'you know that my next door neighbor has three rabbits?
Jerry Maguire: I... I can't compete with that!

Jerry Maguire: I love you. You... you complete me. And I just...
Dorothy: Shut up, just shut up. You had me at "hello".

Dorothy: On the surface, everything seems fine. I've got this great guy. And he loves my kid. And he sure does like me a lot. And I can't live like that. It's not the way i'm built.

Jerry Maguire: What do you want from me? My soul?
Dorothy: Why not? I deserve that much.

Dorothy: I love him! I love him for the man he wants to be. And I love him for the man he almost is.

[Jerry Maguire*, um dos do meu Top 10]

# 41.

I will go in this way,
And find my own way out

I'm only this far
And only tomorrow leads my way...

Please, I wouldnt pass this by
I would take any more than..
What sort of man goes by ?!

Não tenho jeito.

Nunca tive e duvido que venha a ter: jeito para trocar objectos e pessoas, na minha vida.

In general, lines are there for a reason.

For security, for clarity. If you choose to cross the line, you pretty much do so at your own risk. So why is it that the bigger the line, the greater the temptation to cross it? We cant help ourselves. When we see a line we want to cross it. Maybe it’s the thrill of the unfamiliar, a sort of personal dare. The only problem is once that you’ve crossed, it’s almost impossible to go back. But, if you do manage to make it back across the line, you find safety in numbers."

Nem tudo o que parece, é. Nem tudo o que é, parece.

Vive-se e aprende-se.

Aos poucos vou aprendendo a DESidealizar.
Perco o mundo cor-de-rosa, mas ganho um composto por várias cores. Todas as cores do arco-íris: as boas, as menos boas e as assim-assim. que, às vezes, o cavalo branco por ser preto, ou cinzento...ou quem sabe até pode ser, afinal, um burro.

Cause when love is the dealer, I'm addicted.

So go ahead.

Argue with the ref, change the rules. Cheat a little, take a break and tend to your wounds. But play. Play. Play hard, play fast... play loose and free. Play as if there were no tomorrow. It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game... right?

Just close your eyes slowly .

Like you're waiting for a kiss...

“ Be careful what you wish for, 'Cause you just might get it all... You just might get it all !”

'O meu nome é Eva.

Como poderei eu resistir à tentação?!'
