As pessoas sensíveis são tão vulneráveis...

Marlon Brando, 1950. Philippe Halsman/Magnum Photos
Marlon Brando, em discurso directo, numa entrevista a Truman Capote, publicada na revista New Yorker em Novembro de 1957 (faz agora 50 anos). Excerto:
"The last eight, nine years of my life have been a mess," he said. "Maybe the last two have been a little better. Less rolling in the trough of the wave. Have you ever been analysed? I was afraid of it at first. Afraid it might destroy the impulses that made me creative, an artist. A sensitive person receives 50 impressions where somebody else may only get seven. Sensitive people are so vulnerable; the more sensitive you are, the more certain you are to be brutalised, develop scabs. Never evolve. Never allow yourself to feel anything, because you always feel too much. Analysis helps. It helped me. But still, the last eight, nine years I've been pretty mixed up".
O Guardian está a publicar (ou já publicou; não diz qual é a data) "Grandes Entrevistas do Séc. XX".
