As famosas frases da literatura


Existem tantos livros, escritos nos últimos milhares de anos, que se torna impossível escolher as mais famosas frases escritas pelas mãos dos mais fantásticos escritores. Mas, sendo hoje o Dia Mundial do Livro, tentarei trazer à memória de todos alguns momentos que marcaram a literatura e todos os que as leram. Claro que muitas frases fantásticas e imortais ficaram de fora, umas por opção, outras por (imperdoável) esquecimento.
Digam-nos quais são as vossas frases favoritas, quer estejam ou não neste top.
A todos, boas leituras no Dia Mundial do Livro!

    1. Olá! Ainda bem que partilhaste porque eu já andava a dar voltas à cabeça mas não me lembrava de nenhum de um autor português que fosse mesmo famosa. Estas duas que colocaste não conhecia.

      Boas leituras e obrigado!
