And Died no Mar

A lovely poema from Vinicius de Moraes (1913-1980):

And next to that - I could not have said it better - a quote from Vinicius' poem 'Procura-Se Um Amigo':
"(...) it's enough to be human, it's enough to have sentiment, it's enough to have heart. You have to know how to speak or be quiet, more than anything you have to know how to listen. You have to like poetry, dawn, a bird, the sun, the moon, the song of the winds and the music of the breeze. You must have love, a great love for somebody, or feel a void of not having that love. You must love your neighbor and respect the pain the passer-by carries with him. You must keep a secret without sacrificing."
