the well written - fernando pessoa

When one of my Japanese teacups is broken, I imagine that the real
cause was not the careless hand of a maid but the anxieties of the
figures inhabiting the curves of that porcelain. Their grim decision
to commit suicide doesn't shock me: they used the maid as one of
us might use a gun.

- Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
