What Do I Know? | Fernando Pessoa

Diane Arbus, Nancy Bellamy’s Bedroom, N.Y.C.,1961

"A cup of coffee, a cigarette, the penetrating aroma of its smoke, myself sitting in a shadowy room
 with eyes half-closed…I want no more from life than my dreams and this…It doesn’t seem much?
I don’t know. What do I know about what is little and what is a lot?"

 Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
(it was first published in Portuguese in 1982, 47 years after Pessoa's death)

Raoul Ubac, La chambre (L'atelier), 1938
