Favorite Buenos Aires Quotes

1. "I had a library of maybe 1,000 books in my room in Buenos Aires. I did have the sense that everything there was organised in the right way.

Author: Alberto Manguel
2. "If you go to Singapore or Amsterdam or Seoul or Buenos Aires or Islamabad or Johannesburg or Tampa or Istanbul or Kyoto, you'll find that the people differ wildly in the way they dress, in their marriage customs, in the holidays they observe, in their religious rituals, and so on, but they all expect the food to be under lock and key. It's all owned, and if you want some, you'll have to buy it."
Author: Daniel Quinn
3. "¿Cuándo empezó esto que ahora va a terminar con mi asesinato? Esta feroz lucidez que ahora tengo es como un faro y puedo aprovechar un intensísimo haz hacia vastas regiones de mi memoria: veo caras, ratas en un granero, calles de Buenos Aires o Argel, prostitutas y marineros; muevo el haz y veo cosas más lejanas: una fuente en la estancia, una bochornosa siesta, pájaros y ojos que pincho con un clavo. Tal vez ahí, pero quién sabe: puede ser mucho más atrás, en épocas que ahora no recuerdo, en períodos remotísimos de mi primera infancia. No sé. ¿Qué importa, además?"

7. "On February 14, I received a telegram from Buenos Aires urging me to return home immediately; my father was "not at all well." God forgive me, but the prestige of being the recipient of an urgent telegram, the desire to communicate to all of Fray Bentos the contradiction between the negative form of the news and the absoluteness of the adverbial phrase, the temptation to dramatize my grief by feigning a virile stoicism-all this perhaps distracted me from any possibility of real pain."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges

"Temperee, riante, (comme le sont celles d'automne dans la tres gracieuse ville de Buenos Aires) resplendissait la matinee de ce 28 avril: dix heures venait de sonner aux horloges et, a cet instant, eveillee, gesticulant sous le soleil matinal, la Grande Capitale du Sud etait un epi d'hommes qui se disputaient a grands cris la possession du jour et de la terre."
Author: Leopoldo Marechal
10. "He has spent weeks on the pristine, frosty shore of Lake Baikal in Siberia. He has drunk himself stupid in the fairy-tale blood brothels of old Dubrovnik, lounged in red-smoke dens in Laos, enjoyed the New York blackout of 1977, and more recently, feasted on Vegas showgirls in the Dean Martin suite at the Bellagio. He has watched Hindu abstainers wash away their sins in the Ganges, danced a midnight tango on a boulevard in Buenos Aires, and bitten into a faux geisha under the shade of a shogun pavilion in Kyoto."
Author: Matt Haig
11. "Queridos jóvenes, buenas tardes. Quiero primero darles las gracias por el testimonio de fe que ustedes están dando al mundo. Siempre oí decir que a los cariocas no les gusta el frío y la lluvia. Pero ustedes están mostrando que la fe de ustedes es más fuerte que el frío y la lluvia. ¡Enhorabuena! Ustedes son verdaderamente grandes héroes. Veo en ustedes la belleza del rostro joven de Cristo, y mi corazón se llena de alegría. Recuerdo la primera Jornada Mundial de la Juventud a nivel internacional. Se celebró en 1987 en Argentina, en mi ciudad de Buenos Aires. Guardo vivas en la memoria estas palabras de Juan Pablo II a los jóvenes: "¡Tengo tanta esperanza en vosotros! Espero sobre todo que renovéis vuestra fidelidad a Jesucristo y a su cruz redentora" (Discurso a los Jóvenes, 11 de abril 1987:"
Author: Pope Francis
