Fernando Pessoa

It’s stranger than every strangeness
And the dreams of all the poets
And the thoughts of all the philosophers,
That things are really what they seem to be
And there’s nothing to understand.

― Fernando Pessoa (Alberto Caeiro), The Keeper of Sheep. (Sheep Meadow; Trans. from the Portuguese edition, December 1, 1997) Originally published April 1st 1914.
