„What we see is not what we see but what we are.“

—  Fernando Pessoa, livro Livro do Desassossego

<p>Original: Viajar? Para viajar basta existir. [...] Para quê viajar? Em Madrid, em Berlim, na Pérsia, na China, nos Pólos ambos, onde estaria eu senão em mim mesmo, e no tipo e género das minhas sensações?</p><p>A vida é o que fazemos dela. As viagens são os viajantes. O que vemos não é o que vemos, senão o que somos.</p>
Ibid., p. 360
The Book of Disquiet
Contexto: p>To travel? In order to travel it's enough to be. [... ] Why travel? In Madrid, in Berlin, in Persia, in China, at the Poles both, where would I be but in myself, and in the sort and kind of my sensations?Life is what we make of it. Travels are travellers. What we see is not what we see but what we are.</p
