In a discussion about how a village may be larger than a city
because you can see more of the world there -- Pessoa quotes (on p. 241)
these lines from Alberto Caeiro, one of his writing personas:
Because I am the size of what I see
And not the size of my own stature.
These lines are from Millimeters (the observation of infinitesimal things),
on pp. 67-69:
Millimeters -- their existence side by side,
so close together on the ruler,
provokes in me such an impression of wonder and daring . . .
I am an endlessly sensitive photographic plate.
In me every tiny detail is recorded and magnified
to form part of a whole.
