Merchant of Doom wrote:

:huh:

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, / That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, / And then is heard no more.

The beginning of that phrase by Shakespeare is less knownthan the rest.. a tale told by an idiot etc...

appliable to everybody I guess, including me.

I have a best one decribing me more accurately though:

I failed in everything. Since I had no ambition, perhaps I failed in nothing. (Pessoa)

You don't get Cocteau? It's a bit like your Pessoa's quote...

in French "Vivre est une chute horizontale"

Yes, I got it. But I disagree with the idea of such a horizontality of the time scale. I mean, life isn't horizontal in any means. The idea of a horizontality of life is absurd, no? Bringing maths in a maze of events and trajectories isn't pertinent.

Plus, considering Cocteau was a very creative, active, life-loving man who stood out in every aspect, I feel in this sentence a strong, fake pose that bothers me.

me like better me Pessoa authenticity. :oldfart:
