"Everything and nothing"

The poet is a forger who forges so completely that he forges even the
feeling he truly feels as pain. —Fernando Pessoa

More on Pessoa, his heteronyms, and his correspondence with Aleister Crowley (!!) at the NYT:
A fellow astrologer, Pessoa wrote initially to correct errors he spotted in Crowley’s calculations. Crowley responded, warmly, in letters to Pessoa that he signed “666.”
