„You come out at night;
That's when the energy comes.
And the dark side's light,
And the vampires roam.
You strut your rasta wear
And your suicide poem
And a cross from a faith
That died before Jesus came.
You're building a mystery.“

„Then a overflowing desire comes to me, absurd, of a sort of satanism before Satan, in that one day […] an escape out of God can be found and the deepest of us stops, I don't know how, to be a part of being or not being.“

—  Fernando Pessoa, libro Libro dell'inquietudine

Os Grandes Trechos, s/n. Translated from the Portuguese Richard Zenith Edition, Lisbon, 2006
The Book of Disquiet
Originale: E então vem-me o desejo transbordante, absurdo, de uma espécie de satanismo que precedeu Satã, de que um dia [...] se encontre uma fuga para fora de Deus e o mais profundo de nós deixe, não sei como, de fazer parte do ser ou do não ser.
