  • Cansado,
    sobre todo,
    de hallarme cada día,
    cuando termina el sueño,
    allí, donde me encuentre,
    con las mismas narices
    y con las mismas piernas.
  • translation:
  • Tired,
    above all,
    of being always with myself,
    of finding myself everyday,
    when the dream comes to an end,
    wherever I am,
    with the same old nose
    and with the same old legs.
    • Persuadión de los días, ‘Cansancio’ (‘Fatigue’), 1942, Quoted in Chamber's Dictionary of Quotations, p. 358
