Journée Internationale de la Famille

Des fous rires, des pleurs
De la joie et du bonheur
On aime, on donne, on partage
Chaque jour est un voyage
On tombe et on se remet sur pied
Nous sommes de vrais coéquipiers
On s’accroche à l’espoir
Car on a envie d’y croire
Que le meilleur reste à venir
Et on l’attend avec un grand sourire!

A minha praia

Na terra em que o mar não bate, não bate o meu coração.

Caetano Veloso

Eu, você, nós dois aqui neste terraço à beira-mar. O sol já vai caindo e o seu olhar, parece acompanhar a cor do mar.

Tom Jobim

Ela mora no mar, ela brinca na areia. No balanço das ondas, a paz ela semeia.

Marisa Monte

O mundo é grande e cabe nesta janela sobre o mar. O mar é grande e cabe na cama e no colchão de amar. O amor é grande e cabe no breve espaço de beijar.

Carlos Drummond de Andrade

La libertad, Sancho, es uno de los más preciosos dones que a los hombres dieron los cielos: con ella no pueden igualarse los tesoros que encierra la tierra ni el mar encubre.

En la bandera de la libertad bordé el amor más grande de mi vida.

Federico García Lorca

Libertad es el derecho que todo hombre tiene a ser honrado, a pensar y a hablar sin hipocrísia.

Earth Day

We need joy as we need air. We need love as we need water. We need each other as we need the earth we share.

Maya Angelou

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

Jane Goodall

No other planet in the solar system is a suitable home for human beings; it’s this world or nothing. That’s a very powerful perception.

Maisons de Vitré III

It was still quiet in the house, and not a sound was heard from outside, either. Were it not for this silence, my reverie would probably have been disrupted by reminders of daily duties, of getting up and going to school.

Herman Hesse

En route!

Quand partons-nous pour le bonheur?

Charles Baudelaire

Il est temps de vivre la vie que tu t’es imaginée.

Maisons de Vitré II

A man builds a fine house; and now he has a master, and a task for life: he is to furnish, watch, show it, and keep it in repair, the rest of his days.

Lisbon by night

Life is what we make of it. Travel is the traveler. What we see isn’t what we see but what we are.

Fernando Pessoa

Stones in the road? I save every single one, and one day I’ll build a castle.

When one has finished building one’s house, one suddenly realizes that in the process one has learned something that one really needed to know in the worst way – before one began.
