“I have thoughts which, if I could bring them forth and make them living, would add a new lightness to the stars, a new beauty to the world and a greater love to the heart of men.”
If you like poetry, I encourage you to explore the work of Fernando Pessoa, who is, in my opinion, the greatest Portuguese poet to have ever lived. Much of his work is translated to English and you can find it online. There’s a rarely seen depth to his thoughts. There are various heteronyms, he would dissociate and then write, and each has different personality and various, sometimes extreme, points of view. He was crazy, yes, and he was a genius.
Aside from poetry, The Book of Disquiet is a notable piece of art. It will leave you breathless.
