Quotes[edit]

  • Nothing can last forever; there is no memory, however intense, that does not fade.
  • It is a difficult thing to grow up knowing that the thing where we can hold on to take root is dead.
    • From his work “Tell them not to kill me!” in the short story collection The Burning Plain
  • ’I will get to the idea that I dreamed you,’ he said. Because the truth is that I've known you for a long time, but I like you more when I dream of you. Then I make of you what I want. Not like now that, as you see, we have not been able to do anything.
    • From his work “A piece of night” in the short story collection The Golden Cockerel and Other Writings
  • Learn this, son: in the new nest you have to leave an egg. When I aged you, you will learn to live, you will know that the children are leaving you, that they do not thank you for anything; They eat until your memory.
    • From his work “Northern Passage” in the short story collection The Burning Plain
  • The living are those who are a shame. Don't you think so? The dead do not give war to anyone; but what is alive, they do not find how to mortify the lives of others. If they even kill each other to end the hearts of others. With that I tell you everything. On the other hand, we must not hate the dead. They are the great thing. Are good. The best beings on earth.
    • From his work “A piece of night” in the short story collection The Golden Cockerel and Other Writings
