"Things happen, they occur and we either take advantage or we don’t. There’s a children’s game that, in Portugal, goes by the name cat’s cradle: the children tie a rope in a circle, then someone’s hand does this, someone else comes along and complicates it somehow, some finger complicates it even more, yet another one comes and twists his intertwined fingers and pulls his hand, and a new figure is formed. This game is called cat’s cradle. I think that what we have, in life, is a perpetual children’s game with the cat’s cradle, that life presents us with a problem, we look to see what we can get out of it, then we stick our fingers in it, we go like this and something else comes out. "At best, the ability we can hope to achieve is that of becoming children again, and be able to truly see how the cat‘s cradle turns out." —Agostinho da Silva
