José Saramago was a Portuguese novelist, poet and journalist. He born on 16 November 1922 and he died on 18 June 2010. He received on 1998 Nobel Prize in Literature. His works, some of which can be seen as allegories and sometimes it's really difficult to understand her literature, emphasizing the human factor.
I was searching for some of him quotes and I found this one:
"What kind of world is this that can send machines to Mars and does nothing to stop the killing of a human being?"
He's completely right. Sometimes, we forget what is really important. We should take care first our planet and its inhabitants. I think we aren't able to take care our planet, so we don't need other to destroy. Human being must reflect their acts and resolve their problems. We have so many problems and each day appear one new to resolve, let's focus what is really important.
I think it's important to discover space and its secrets, but it's much more important resolve problems such pollution, cancer... Just think about this!
