El Teatro del Bien y del Mal

TaoDeChing, Lao Tze

Morar em Nova Iorque é bom,
mas é uma merda.
Morar no Rio é uma merda,
mas é bom.
             Tom Jobim

Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.

Not the intensity but the duration
of high feelings makes high men.

Virtue is insufficient temptation.
           George Bernard Shaw

Cuanto más inútiles son los profesores,
tanto más elevados son sus salarios.
           Galileo Galilei

Las únicas palabras que merecen existir
son las que son mejores que el silencio.
           Proverbio Chino

Ao que não sabe, qualquer um engana.
Ao que não tem, qualquer um compra.
           Simón Rodríguez, 1826

They first came for the communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
but I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me.
And by that time there was no one left to speak for me.
                   Martin Niemoeller

It is not the false what limits the true,
but the insignificant.
                   René Thom

Of course, there are many mathematicians
who are more or less honest.
But almost all of them are conformists.
They are more or less honest,
but they tolerate those who are not honest.
                   Gregory Perelman

The Flower Girl: You? 
The Tramp: (He nods in assent and smiles shyly,
            and then points to his eyes)
                 You can see now?
The Flower Girl: (She nods and her smile widens)
                 Yes, I can see now.
       Charles Chaplin - Final scene of City Lights

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in:
machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical,
our cleverness hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little:
more than machinery we need humanity;
more than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.
        Charles Chaplin - Speech of 'The Great Dictator'

After a few years under the spotlights,
renowned and famous artists and scientists
should be compelled to change their names
to see whether they are still any good.
