Veel üks...

“Freedom is the possibility of isolation. You are free if you can withdraw from people, not having to seek them out for the sake of money, company, love, glory or curiosity, none of which can thrive in silence and solitude. If you can't live alone, you were born a slave. You may have all the splendours of the mind and the soul, in which case you're a noble slave, or an intelligent servant, but you're not free. And you can't hold this up as your own tragedy, for your birth is a tragedy of Fate alone. Hapless you are, however, if life itself so oppresses you that you're forced to become a slave. Hapless you are if, having been born free, with the capacity to be isolated and self-sufficient, poverty should force you to live with others."
― Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet




Ega ma vist jõua ära oodata, millal "Rahutuse raamat" eesti keelde tõlgitakse... See on juba nii palju aastaid mu lemmikraamatute hulgas, kuigi olen vaid üksikuid tillukesi tsitaate lugenud siit-sealt :)
Samas ma ei tahaks seda üldse raamatukogust laenutada ja tähtaja peale lugeda... Eks peab vist Internetist tellima endale. Iga kord, kui jälle komistan mõnele artiklile sellest raamatust (no komistan, kuna ma käin uurimas, kas ta on juba ära tõlgitud ka või?), mõtlen, et imeline lugu - ainult seda tahakski lugeda! :)
