I recently found myself rereading The Book of Disquiet and fell in love with this paradoxical but deeply truthful quote by Fernando Pessoa, “We have what we renounce, for we conserve it eternally intact in our dreams, by the light of the sun that isn’t, or of the moon that cannot be.” If you like it, share it with your loved ones.
The Book of Disquiet in the phenomenal translation by Richard Zenith reads like meditation in prose.
