Tons of notable quotes, presumably from true-life Portugal. This one is from disc two, The Judge:
What a court must judge follows this logic:
Someone commits a crime. It's unlawful and harms someone else. The court judges the graveness
of the crime in proportion to the damage and social impact caused. The rest of society acknowledges the unlawful acts committed and the sentence applied by the judge and infers conclusions for its own behavior. Some will find the punishment light. Others harsh. Because, unlike genies, men realize that good and bad are relative things. This is normal. What is not normal and begins to seem remotely repugnant is this endless list of misery and guilt where there are neither innocents nor enough prisons to house all the culprits! This random chain of events
is a slimy issue that saddens and sinks us.
In the '80s, the shipyard had around 2,000 workers. If you weren't sleepy and always wanted to work, there was work. They asked for the help of Viana do Castelo's population, for them to join in.
I'm also in Viana because Mr. Vítor is fighting, on his own, a plague of Asian hornets that threatens to decimate the bees and destroy the local honey production.
We now agree on almost everything, one of them being, if I may be so honest, that you gentlemen are a bunch of half-wits. Nobody can afford to buy anything anymore, companies are closing down, unemployment is rampant. I stopped going to mass because I don't believe in God anymore.
Nearly all of Scheherazade's stories begin like this:
Hear, O auspicious King. It has reached me that in a sad country among countries, where ruins unfolded and the people starved, three well-mounted rich merchants arrived. They had come at the request of the ruined rulers, who possessed in their safes little more than a filmsy fart. And in exchange for a loan, the merchants required interest and obedience. The latter for fear that, were the law not imposed, the country's foolish men would no longer be able to pay the debt, let alone the interest. And so nationals and foreigners agreed to always meet after the new moon, with the purpose of re-agreeing to what had been agreed.
