"The astonishing reality of things
Is my discovery every day.
Each thing is what it is,
And it’s hard to explain to someone how much this makes me happy,
How much it’s enough for me.
It’s enough to exist to be whole."
From "Poemas Inconjuntos" by Alberto Caeiro (one of Pessoa's heteronyms), taken from a wonderful online project at the Portuguese National Library
(translation stolen from this wonderful blog which owes its existence to the fact that Pessoa's writings are now in the public domain)
