Paul Auster – How I became a writer

Present of my day.

“…moving helps generate thoughts and words because there is this kind of music inside the body that is language and by moving around new things come to me that don’t come to me when I’m sitting.”

Letters of Note – compiled by Shaun Usher

Sobre este livro: se for possível, compre.

This is my advice about this book: If possible, buy it!

Very much an ‘Object of desire’.

9732831196_7119b19fab_o

“Funny, tragic, brilliantly incisive, historic, lyrical, romantic and studiedly offensive, this stupendous compendium of letters ancient and modern is my book of the year. You will never tire of it.”

– STEPHEN FRY

“…beautifully designed anthology…”

THE OBSERVER

“Letters of Note is quite literally the most enjoyable volume it is possible to imagine. Every page is a marvel.”

THE SPECTATOR

“The literary equivalent of a box of chocolates — bite-sized and pure addictive pleasure.”

THE SUNDAY TIMES’ BEST BOOKS OF 2013

“There have been many collections of letters before this one, and no doubt there will be many to follow. But it is hard to see how Letters Of Note could ever be surpassed.”

MAIL ON SUNDAY

“…Usher’s compilation is hard to beat.”

HARPER’S BAZAAR

“A truly extraordinary reading experience […] a mind-boggling, sumptuous hardback.”

“Letters of Note is a collection of 125 of the world’s most entertaining, inspiring and unusual letters.

From Virginia Woolf’s heart-breaking suicide letter, to Queen Elizabeth II’s recipe for drop scones sent to President Eisenhower; from the first recorded use of the expression ‘OMG’ in a letter to Winston Churchill, to Gandhi’s appeal for calm to Hitler; and from Iggy Pop’s beautiful letter of advice to a troubled young fan, to Leonardo da Vinci’s remarkable job application letter, Letters of Note is a celebration of the power of written correspondence which captures the humour, seriousness, sadness and brilliance that make up all of our lives.”

Seja gentil com você – Be gentle with yourself

1546228_10152749035302621_1763820508356504070_n

 

“Seja gentil com você, pois você está passando por uma expansão e transformação das suas crenças e de como usá-las no mundo. Você está re-sintonizando décadas de velhos hábitos e mudando a maneira de como você vive. Isto não é uma pequena mudança. E é normal que você se sinta desconfortável. Grandes mudanças normalmente são acompanhadas de desconfortos e dúvidas em relação ao que pensamos. Não desista de prosseguir com esta sua missão. Não neste momento. Você está num processo de mudança e o seu “Eu Superior” está te guiando.”

“Porque chamamos “Medicina Alternativa” quando os métodos utilizados são os originais que os humanos tem utilizado há milênios? Todos os medicamentos químicos aplicados na medicina ‘moderna’ foram descobertos há apenas 100 anos.”
