„If you want to feel the happiness of loving, forget about your soul.
The soul ruins love.
Only in God can the soul meet satisfaction.
Not in another soul.
Only in God — or out of the world.
Souls cannot communicate.
Let your body talk to another body.
Because bodies understand each other, but souls don’t.“

—  Manuel Bandeira Brazilian writer 1886 - 1968
Se queres sentir a felicidade de amar, esquece a tua alma. A alma é que estraga o amor. Só em Deus ela pode encontrar satisfação. Não noutra alma. Só em Deus - ou fora do mundo. As almas são incomunicáveis. Deixa o teu corpo entender — se com outro corpo. Porque os corpos se entendem, mas as almas não. Arte de amar (The Art of Loving)
