Ambassador launches book of quotes from different authors

"Les vertus se perdent dans l´intérêt, comme les fleuves se perdent dans la mer."

"Virtues are lost in self-interest as rivers are lost in the sea." - La Rochefoucauld (*)

´A Bela Viagem´ by Synésio Sampio Goes Filho, published by Editora Migalhas, invites us to wonder about love, work, friendship, beliefs and disbeliefs man ever; and many other topics that get forgotten in the whirlwind of life.

Drawing on his tremendous cultural baggage, packed around the world, Goes Filho presents a collection of indispensable quotes by Shakespeare, Millôr Fernandes, Drummond, Montaigne, Pascal, Nietzsche, Fernando Pessoa ... , and also de Gaulle, Churchill and Pope Benedict XVI, along with his unique insight, humor and gentleness of spirit.

This diary of sentences, phrases and aphorisms is surely to make you think and feel, maybe even cry and laugh!

Migalhas, the editor, is launching the book on August 11 at 11AM at the Circolo Italiano, Sao Paolo in Brazil. It is available from the best bookstores, and you can order it online at Migalhas Bookstore.
