E que mais podia querer uma pessoa que já tem tudo?

"Que Portugal ganhe o Campeonato da Europa"
Sérgio Lebreiro, contabilista, em resposta à questão "O que espera de 2004?" (Palpites, Diário de Notícias, 04/01/06)
"In North America the black bear was seen by [Samuel] Hearne swimming for hours with widely open mouth, thus catching, like a whale, insects in the water. Even in so extreme a case as this, if the supply of insects were constant, and if better adapted competitors did not already exist in the country, I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being rendered, by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits, with larger and larger mouths, till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale."
Darwin, Charles; "The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection" (On the origin and transitions of organic beings with peculiar habits and structure)
