Emperadores e idiotas

'Sandman' - 'The Kindly Ones'

“It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes.

But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor”.

The Kindly Ones
(Neil Gaiman)

“We don’t have a clue what’s really going down, we just kid ourselves that we’re in control of our lives while a paper’s thickness away things that would drive us mad if we thought about them for too long play with us, and move us around from room to room, and put us away at night when they’re tired, or bored.”

Rose Walker – The Sandman, Vol. 2:
The Doll’s House
(Neil Gaiman, 1990)
