Quote of the day

21 Nov

Seen on the side of a truck this morning:

“Look, there’s no metaphysics on earth like chocolates.”
– Fernando Pessoa, Portuguese poet (1888-1935)

    Mmmmmm, what a delicious quote, & a sweet philosophy! I’m gonna have to check into this Pessoa person*!
    Don’t suppose there was a company name on the truck? I’m curious what kind of business would be so enlightened. @>)
    *That’s actually a pun. Pessoa means “person” in Portuguese. Unfortunately, though, I don’t know enough of the language to read it in the original.

    I didn’t catch the name of the company, I was too busy scribbling down the quote so I could Google it here at work….

    INTERNATIONAL PLUMBERS
    LONDON – PARIS – NEW YORK
    but mostly Liverpool
