Bestseller Books Fires "A ambição é apenas um logro. A sabedoria enganou-se. E o próprio vício mentiu. Não existe nem virtude, nem piedade, nem amor, nem pudor, nem os seus contrários, mas apenas uma concha vazia dançando no alto de uma alegria que é também a Dor, um clarão de beleza na tempestade das formas.""Nunca serei vencida. Só o serei à força de vencer. Cada emboscada desfeita, encerrando-me no amor que será o meu túmulo, há-de fazer-me terminar a vida num cárcere de victórias.""O amor é um castigo. Somos punidos por não termos podido permanecer sós...""Só se pode construir a felicidade sobre alicerces de desespero. Creio que vou poder começar a construir."Quando escreveu os textos deste livro, Marguerite Yourcenar tinha trinta e dois e tentava sarar-se de um desgosto amoroso. Fedra, Aquiles, Pátroclo, Antígona, Clitmnestra, Safo e Maria Madalena são algumas das personagens mitológicas que inspiraram estas histórias. Entre elas, estão pensamentos soltos de Marguerite.
