“I sat by the river Pedra and cried” is the story of a girl who finds her childhood lover after many years, but she has undergone many changes and has become involved in meetings and ceremonies about mother nature and religion.

In part of the book we read:
“I sat by the river Pedra and cried. The winter air cooled the tears on my cheeks and my tears flowed in the cold water that passed by me. Somewhere, this river joins another river to finally flow into the sea, far from my heart and eyes.

May my tears go so far that my love will never be found. One day I cried for her. May my tears go so far that I can forget the Pedra River and all that we once had together.

I must forget the roads, the mountains and the plains of my dreams. Dreams that never come true.
“Live,” he said. “It’s a reminder of the work of the elderly.”

In parts of the book I sat by the river Pedra and cried, we hear:
“Legend has it that whoever sheds tears in this river, his tears will turn to stone in the river, and he wished that he could wipe his heart from his chest and throw it to the bottom of the river to turn to stone.”

“I sat by the river Pedra and cried. The winter air cooled the tears on my cheeks and my tears flowed in the cold waters that passed by me. “Somewhere, this river joins another river so that eventually, far from my heart and eyes, they all fall into the sea.”

“May my tears go so far that my love will never be found. One day I cried for her. May my tears go so far that I can forget the Pedra River and all that we once had together.

“Love remains a drug, at the beginning it gives you a feeling of happiness and absolute surrender, you want more day by day, you are not addicted yet, but you like that feeling and you think you can have it, you think about your lover for a few minutes And then you forget about it for three hours. But little by little you get used to that person and you become completely dependent on him, now you think about him for three hours and forget about him for two minutes. If it is not available to you, you feel the same way that addicts do.

The addict gives up everything to get drugs, and you are willing to do anything for love. “So we should only love someone we can have with us.”
“All narrations of love are the same. And this is a love story. Love is very similar to a dam: if a small gap is created in which water can drip through, these droplets will gradually collapse the entire dam, and no one will be able to control the force of the water. Love is a trap. It ‘s like drugs.

At first you feel liberated, then as much as you want to think you can control it, you suddenly find yourself accustomed, dependent. “If not, hang on and do whatever it takes to get it.”
“As if he had read my mind,” he raised his glass from the other side of the table: “Hello, love.” He was also a little drunk. I decided to take the opportunity. “To the health of the wise who understand that some loves are childish foolishness,” he replied. »»
