Quotes by Fernando António Nogueira Pessoa

No intelligent idea can gain general acceptance unless some stupidity is mixed in with it.
Could it think, the heart would stop beating.
Wise is he who enjoys the show offered by the world.
All is worthwhile if the soul is not small.
Success consists in being successful, not in having potential for success. Any wide piece of ground is the potential site of a palace, but there's no palace till it's built.
To feel today what one felt yesterday isn't to feel - it's to remember today what was felt yesterday, to be today's living corpse of what yesterday was lived and lost.
At first, it's unfamiliar, then it strikes root.
Look, there's no metaphysics on earth like chocolates.
God wills, Man dreams, the Work is born.
To choose ways of not acting was ever the concern and scruple of my life.
