Jorge Amado

Jorge Amado

Brazilian writer
He owned a whole world full of memories, of lovely moments relived and happy recollections. I'm not saying he was happy or that he didn't suffer. He suffered very much, but he did not despair; he still drew nourishment from what he had been given. But the sadness never left him. Happiness needs more than memories of the past to feed on; it also needs dreams of the future.More Jorge Amado quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Many things I might not write today because I no longer believe them, but I wouldn't change them, since I believed them at the time.More Jorge Amado quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
