From the Portuguese poet and essayist (possibly should make that poets and essayists, as there are so many identities for him…), via a friend:
“O valor das coisas não está no tempo que elas duram, mas na intensidade com que acontecem. Por isso existem momentos inesquecíveis, coisas inexplicáveis e pessoas incomparáveis.”
“The value of things is not the time that they last, but the intensity with which they occur. So there are unforgettable moments, inexplicable things and incomparable people.”
Still having momentos inesquecíveis in Maine such as this ocean view from Lobster Cove.
