TO BE GRANDIOUS, be whole: nothing from you exaggerates or excludes.
Be whole in everything. Put what you've got in every little you make.
This way in every lake the moon will shine because she lives.

Ricardo Reis (Fernando Pessoa's heteronyms)

Fernando Pessoa was one of the most famous Portuguese poets and by far my favorite! He had many many many heteronyms, I believe about 75 of them (he had a very imaginative and productive mind) but my favorite was always Ricardo Reis.
even though he was not "someone" to question things (unlike me), the way he saw his surroundings and took them as they were, always fascinated me. So raw, so simple yet so enchanting.

For non-Portuguese speakers, Fernando Pessoa's work has been translated to English. I totally recommend you to look for it; it's totally worth it!

What makes you GRANDIOUS?
