As ruínas do pensamento


THE MIND IS AN ANCIENT AND FAMOUS CAPITAL

The mind is a city like London,
Smoky and populous: it is a capital
Like Rome, ruined and eternal,
Marked by the monuments which no one
Now remembers. For the mind, like Rome, contains  
Catacombs, aqueducts, amphitheatres, palaces,
Churches and equestrian statues, fallen, broken or soiled.  
The mind possesses and is possessed by all the ruins  
Of every haunted, hunted generation’s celebration.

O Espírito é mesmo assim....mas hoje em dia dá-se mais importância ao corpo e esse consome o melhor do Homem.

Nunca vi tanta exaltação do corpo, até os Antigos ficariam boquiabertos! :)
