“Let us, then, with regard to impatience, consider whether, as patience in God, its opposite was born and discovered in our adversary.” Se tem uma coisa que Dite é, é paciente e resignado.
TERTULIANDO // TURTLEANDO
OC é Cético?
A impaciência que eclode exige uma ou duas ou três represas.
Dir-se-ia que o irascível é o pai do dinheiro e da propriedade.
A impaciência que espera, ela, ó, amigos, é a esperança
O Cavaleiro do Infinito Desdém
O inconsolável reformado
não reforma só se deixa formatar
O mendigo saciado a cada grão,
Bom homem bom!
Isso que se chama, literalmente,
Esperar o seu bocado até o Fim dos Tempos!
Você bota Fé na falta de crença? Você não bota fé em nada,
nem rende juros
sua conta bancária!
O paciente é um hipócrita
O médico é o hipocrático.
“For, as soon as he perceived that it was through his impatience that he had committed the first sin, having learned from his own experience what would assist in wrong-doing, he availed himself of this same impatience to lead men into sin.”
A TPM existencial de Eva gerou a TPM fisiológica. Desde então o círculo se fechou. Ouroboros don’t bother! O que está sepultado, ao menos, não incomoda, certo? Deixai-o quieto.
O absurdo de tudo isso é que “animais também pecam”, enquanto animais… Que eles possam ser o invólucro de almas penadas pecadoras, expiações feitas de carne e sofrimento, isso os indianos já nos haviam ensinado, e Schopenhauer e Nietzsche poderiam, escusados nisso, deixar de se condoer por cães e cavalos. Mas o mais hilário é que o macaco não é mais que o macaco de Adão, se é que manjam desse manjericão! Qual a virtude em ser o inconsciente estóico? Em virtude do vício, me encontro a repetir a perdição.
Tudo me dá idéia, então não dá idéia!
Tudo me dá medo do esgoto
Se eu me esgoto significa
que sou Homem?!
O Cão Late Já dentro de Mim
Uma peça de dominó, um peão de vanguarda do jogo ocidental e da hierarquia, pode se zangar e arrevesar? O jogo é claro como as pedras que começam, minha dama!
“Since it had plunged Adam and Eve into death, it taught their son, also, to commit the first murder.”
“Who has ever attempted adultery save one who was unable to withstand his lustful desires?” Veja que eu não tenho a menor paciência para a poligamia…
Não sei como você tem saco pra essas coisas!
“After the rain of manna as food, after the water that followed and flowed from the rock, they gave up hope in the Lord, unable to endure a three-days’ thirst.”
“This severe command, which the Lord did not intend should be carried out, Abraham heard with patience and, had God so willed, he would have fulfilled it.”
Added insult to injury: “added grace to the Law”.
“Heretofore, men demanded an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and they returned evil for evil. As yet, patience was not found upon the earth, for as yet, you see, there was not faith. Meanwhile, impatience was enjoying the opportunities occasioned by the Law.” “the poison of the tongue was removed.”
Honor Thy Father (Teatro dos Sonhos): “The Law acquired more than it lost when Christ said: <Love your enemies and bless those who curse you and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children [teacher] of your Father in heaven.>”
Nada pertence a mim mesmo
nem sequer os meus pecados
Um dos argumentadores mais fracos de toda a Cristandade. “It is for pagans to be unable to sustain all loss; they would set worldly goods before their life perhaps.”
“by your meekness you will strike a more severe blow to the wrong-doer; for he will suffer at the hands of Him by whose grace you practice meekness.” Não creia que tenha sido essa a conotação de Cristo ao expressar-se sobre levar golpes indistintamente nos dois lados da face.
“When men reproach you, rejoice.”
“Grieve not over one who has fallen asleep even as the gentiles who have no hope.” Uma religião tão funesta não tem o direito de pedir que cessem as lamentações!
Não é à toa que homem começa com “h” de hipocrisia, religião com “r” de recompensa e Cristo com “c” de cobiça: “Why, then, do we believe Him a judge, but not also an avenger? Of this He assures us when He says: <Revenge is mine and I will repay them,> that is: <Have patience with Me and I will reward your patience.>”
Eu fui feito à vossa escrita e a à vossa dessemelhança.
“and everything done with violence has either met with no success or has collapsed or has plunged to its own destruction.” HE-HE!
“If you are too mild in your self-defense, you will be acting like a madman; if your defense is excessive, you will be depressed. Why should I be concerned about revenge when I cannot regulate its extent because of my inability to endure pain? Whereas, if I yield and suffer the injury, I shall have no pain; and if I have no pain, I shall have no desire for revenge.” Excelente psicologia. A dor da ação na época de Tertuliano devia ser condizente com a nossa!
“Aqueles que eu amo eu castigo” Deus
“In the case of the prodigal son, too, it is the patience of his father that welcomes him and clothes him and feeds him and finds an excuse for him in the face of the impatience of his angry brother.”
“Tongues, knowledge, prophecies are made void, but there persist faith, hope, and charity”
“How God laughed, and how the Evil One was split asunder, when Job, with perfect calm, would wipe away the discharge oozing from his ulcer and, with a jesting remark, would call back to the cavity and sustenance of his open flesh the tiny creatures that were trying to make their way out!” “he was willing to endure the loss of his children that he might not live without something to suffer!”
“The eyebrows are relaxed, giving an impression of joyousness.”
“The mouth is closed in becoming silence. Its complexion is that of the serene and blameless. It shakes its head frequently in the direction of the Devil, and its laughter conveys a threat to him [?]. The upper part of its garment is white and close-fitting so that it is not blown about or disturbed (by the wind).”
“a patience not like the patience practiced by the peoples of the earth, which is false and disgraceful. (…) the Devil also taught his own a special brand of patience.” “it is only God alone whom they cannot endure. But let their patience and the patience of their chief take care: there is fire beneath the earth awaiting this kind of patience.”
