Ant Glory

Ant, my ant,
In you my heart beholds
The glory of the Supreme.
Tiniest in size, you house the dream
Of the Omnipotent.
To me you are extremely important,
Because you represent
One extremity of God,
His message of smallness;
In another word, His greatness.

What I've done

Ser poeta é ser mais alto, é ser maior
Do que os homens! Morder como quem beija!
É ser mendigo e dar como quem seja
Rei do Reino de Aquém e de Além Dor!

É ter de mil desejos o esplendor
E não saber sequer que se deseja!
É ter cá dentro um astro que flameja,
É ter garras e asas de condor!

É ter fome, é ter sede de Infinito!
Por elmo, as manhãs de oiro e de cetim...
É condensar o mundo num só grito!

E é amar-te, assim, perdidamente...
É seres alma, e sangue, e vida em mim
E dizê-lo cantando a toda a gente!

Big Brother is a fictional character in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, the enigmatic dictator of Oceania, a totalitarian state taken to its utmost logical consequence- where the ruling elite ('the Party') wield total power for its own sake over the inhabitants.
In the society that Orwell describes, everyone is under complete surveillance by the authorities, mainly by telescreens. The people are constantly reminded of this by the phrase "Big Brother is watching you", which is the core "truth" of the propaganda system in this state.


When you thought I wasn’t looking, you displayed my first report, and I wanted to do another.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you fed a stray cat, and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you gave me a sticker, and I knew that little things were special things.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you put your arm around me, and I felt loved.
When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw tears come from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things hurt-but that it’s all right to cry.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you smiled, and it made me want to look that pretty too.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you cared, and I wanted to be everything I could be.
When you thought I wasn’t looking-I looked...and wanted to say thanks for all those things you did when you thought I wasn’t looking

Hope is the thing with feathers

"Hope" is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea,
Yet never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

About halfway into Pedro Almodovar's "Talk to Her," one of the lead male characters offers this advice to a newfound friend: "A woman's brain is a mystery. You have to pay attention to them, be thoughtful occasionally, let them know they matter to us." It says a great deal about the character and the movie when one considers the fact that he is referring to a woman lingering in a vegetative coma.
Almodovar is one of America's favorite cinematic imports. Since 1988's "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown," the Spanish filmmaker has built a strong following in theaters across the United States. "Talk to Her," Almodovar's follow-up to the Oscar-winning "All About My Mother," is a stylized and wonderfully textured examination of two men's aching need to unlock the mystery of women. "Talk to Her," a sepia-toned dream of a movie, tells the story of Marco (Dario Grandinetti), a journalist who falls in love with Lydia (Rosario Flores), a famous female matador. However, the brief romance is interrupted when Lydia is gored by a bull and spends most of the movie in a coma. While standing vigil at her bedside, Marco meets male nurse Benigno, a social misfit with an increasingly unhealthy fascination with another coma patient, Alicia (Leonar Watling).
