Author: Alejandro Casona

Author: Alex Sanchez
3. "El teléfono estaba sobre la colcha, pequeño, negro y siniestro. Lo miró sin tocarlo. Bip-bip. Aterrada. Bip-bip. Su zumbido iba mezclándose con las palabras de la canción, como si formase parte de ella. Porque los contrabandistas, seguían diciendo los Tigres, ésos no perdonan nada. El Güero había usado las mismas palabras, riendo como solía hacerlo, mientras le acariciaba la nuca y le tiraba el teléfono encima de la falda. Si alguna vez suena, es que me habré muerto. Entonces, corre. Cuanto puedas, prietita. Corre y no pares, porque ya no estaré allí para ayudarte. Y si llegas viva a donde sea, échate un tequila en mi memoria. Por los buenos ratos, mi chula. Por los buenos ratos."
Author: Arturo Pérez Reverte
4. "I took my time exploring. I savored the first minutes in a new home. Carlos would always go straight to unpacking boxes, looking for the sheets and coffeepot and swearing that we were going to get better organized, while I stepped stealthily over the bare floors, peeking around corners and into alluring doors, which generally turned out to be the broom closet. But there was that thrilling sense that, like a new lover, the place held attributes I had yet to discover. My favorite book as a child was _The Secret Garden_. It's embarrassing to think I'd merrily relocated again and again, accompanying Carlos to the ends of the earth, because of the lure of a possible garret or secret closet. But it might be true."
Author: Barbara Kingsolver
5. "¿Explicarlo? No -se dijo- , creerlo, nada más. México no se explica; en México se cree, con furia, con pasión, con desaliento."

8. "You have blotted out the past for me, far more effectively than all the bright lights of Monte Carlo."

9. "You see, Dash -- I was never the girl in your head. And you were never the boy in my head. I think we both knew that. It's only when we try to make the girl or boy in our head real that the true trouble comes. I did that with Carlos, and it was a bad failure. Be careful what you're doing, because no one is ever who you want them to be. And the less you really know them, the more likely you are to confuse them with the girl or boy in your head."
Author: David Levithan
10. "Una gran quantità di libri è un fardello faticoso, e per l'anima una distrazione. Allo stesso tempo procura grande abbondanza di lavoro e mancanza di riposo. L'intelligenza si gira qua e là: la memoria è appesantita da una cosa e da un'altra... Credimi, questo non significa nutrire con gli scritti il proprio spirito, ma soffocarlo sotto il peso delle cose e seppellirlo: o forse torturare l'anima stordita da troppe cose come Tantalo in mezzo alle onde, che non può assaggiare niente e desidera ardentemente tutto."
Author: Francesco Petrarca
11. "«Desde muy niño tuve que interrumpir mi educación para ir a la escuela». No fui capaz de discutirlo con nadie, porque sentía, sin poder explicarlo, que mis"
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
12. "El cristianismo podría ser bueno si alguien intentara practicarlo."
Author: George Bernard Shaw
13. "Apenas había tenido tiempo de identificarlo como un delfín cuando me encontré en medio de una manada. Se elevaron a mi alrededor suspirando con fuerza, brillantes sus negros lomos al arquearse a la luz de la luna. Debían ser unos ocho, y uno salió tan cerca que con nadar tres brazadas podría haber tocado su cabeza de ébano. Jugando entre saltos y resoplidos cruzaron la bahía, y yo les seguí a nado, contemplando cómo subían a la superficie, respiraban hondo y volvían a zambullirse, dejando sólo un creciente anillo de espuma en el agua arrugada. Finalmente, y como obedeciendo a una señal, se volvieron y enfilaron hacia la boca de la bahía y la lejana costa de Albania; yo me erguí para verlos alejarse, nadando por el blanco surco de luz, con un centelleo en el lomo al elevarse y dejarse caer pesadamente en el agua templada. Tras ellos quedó una estela de grandes burbujas que temblaban y relucían un instante cual lunas en miniatura antes de desaparecer bajo las ondas."
Author: Gerald Durrell
14. "I rolled my eyes, trying to keep my eyes off his body, just the sight of his abs or arms was enough to make me want to get naked and let Carlo take over anything he wanted."
Author: Holly Hood
15. "For many years I enjoyed the pleasure of cruising on my yacht all summer long and these were my best holidays. In mid-May, we'd start in St Tropez. I'd collect my bikinis from my home there and then we'd go up to Cannes for the Film Festival, on to Monte Carlo for the Grand Prix and then to Italy."
Author: Ivana Trump
16. "[...] and I told him a dream I had about a strange Arabian figure that was pursuing me across the desert; that I tried to avoid; that finally overtook me just before I reached the Protective City. "Who is this?" said Carlo. We pondered it. I proposed it was myself, wearing a shroud. That wasn't it. Something, someone, some spirit was pursuing all of us across the desert of life and was bound to catch us before we reached heaven. Naturally, now that I look back on it, this is only death: death will overtake us before heaven. The one thing that we yearn for in our living days, that makes us sigh and groan and undergo sweet nauseas of all kinds, is the remembrance of some lost bliss that was probably experienced in the womb and can only be reproduced (though we hate to admit it) in death. But who wants to die?"
Author: Jack Kerouac
17. "Among all the occurrences possible in the universe the a priori probability of any particular one of them verges upon zero. Yet the universe exists; particular events must take place in it, the probability of which (before the event) was infinitesimal. At the present time we have no legitimate grounds for either asserting or denying that life got off to but a single start on earth, and that, as a consequence, before it appeared its chances of occurring were next to nil. ... Destiny is written concurrently with the event, not prior to it... The universe was not pregnant with life nor the biosphere with man. Our number came up in the Monte Carlo game. Is it surprising that, like the person who has just made a million at the casino, we should feel strange and a little unreal?"
Author: Jacques Monod
18. "Tienes que oír mi amor con su voz, tocarlo en su carne, aceptarlo como es, desnudo y libre."
Author: Jaime Sabines
19. "…Carlotta hovered over us as we devoured her meatballs, running her floury fingers over the backs of our chairs, then gently touching our heads, the napes of our necks. We pretended not to notice, ashamed in front of one another and ourselves to show that we drank in her nurturance as eagerly as her meat sauce."
Author: Jonathan Lethem
20. "-En el pan es de día -murmura Johnny, tapándose la cara-. Y yo me atrevo a tocarlo, a cortarlo en dos, a metérmelo en la boca. No pasa nada, ya se: eso es lo terrible. Te das cuenta de que es terrible que no pase nada? Cortas el pan, le clavas el cuchillo, y todo sigue como antes. Yo no comprendo, Bruno."
Author: Julio Cortázar
21. "¿Por qué no aceptar lo que estaba ocurriendo sin pretender explicarlo, sin sentar las nociones del orden y de desorden?"
Author: Julio Cortázar
22. "El pan está fuera de mí, pero lo toco con los dedos, lo siento, siento que eso es el mundo, pero si yo puedo tocarlo y sentirlo, entonces, no se puede decir realmente que sea otra cosa, o ¿tú crees que se puede decir?"
Author: Julio Cortázar
23. "We have some nachos left." Carlos motioned to a plate on the table. "But I don't suppose you're interested.""I already ate." Ian sat at the end of the table."Anyone we know?" Carlos's amber eyes twinkled. "Ouch." He glared at Toni."

Hes was looking for a mate? What kind of mate? His gaze shifted towards her, and his eyes glittered with a hard, angry look."You--what?" Toni stepped back, apparently stunned."You heard me," Carlos growled."Ye want to get married?" the Scotsman asked."Don't look so shocked, Ian. Didn't want you want to get married?""Aye, but--""You can't get married," Toni declared. "You're gay."Caitlyn snorted. Were they crazy?Carlos glared at her in the shadows, then shifted his gaze to Toni. "I never said I was gay.""Of course you're gay," she insisted. "I saw you dance the samba in a hot pink sequined thong."Carlos shrugged. "So? You said I was very sexy. You were practically drooling."Ian stiffened. "When was this?""Before I met you," Toni muttered."

Author: Maggie Nelson
28. "Es necesario tener claro que la literatura recoge del centro de la vida social e ideológica los contenidos más sensibles de las preocupaciones y los debates históricos, de ahí que resulte forzoso ubicarlos en el seno de la sociedad donde se gestan para empezar a entender el significado artístico que después adquieren."
Author: Martha Elena Munguia Zatarain
29. "Ayahuasca can heal, but it an also be used to kill,' Carlos continues to translate for Juan... The key is remaining humble, being a servant of ayahuasca, not a master. 'Give yourself to the benefit of others, to God,' Juan says, his eyes daring over us, reading our energies. 'You must have a purpose to help other people, a desire to hep others. If you have a pure heart, a humble mind, and faith in your soul--then the Science will open up to you and show you its wonders."
Author: Rak Razam

Author: Simone Elkeles
44. "When Alex leaves a little later, Carlos steps forward. "Need help?"I shake my head."Are you ever gonna talk to me again? Dammit, Kiara, enough with the silent treatment.

A ellos no les gustan las reglas, y no sienten ningún respeto por el statu quo. Puedes citarlos, discrepar de ellos, glorificarlos o vilipendiarlos. Casi lo único que no puedes hacer es ignorarlos. Porque ellos cambian las cosas. Son los que hacen avanzar al género humano. Y aunque algunos los vean como a locos, nosotros vemos su genio. Porque las personas que están lo suficientemente locas como para pensar que pueden cambiar el mundo... son quienes lo cambian"
Author: Steve Jobs
49. "Quando l'ombra del telaio si disegnò sulle tendine era tra le sette e le otto del mattino, e fui di nuovo dentro il tempo, sentendo il ticchettio dell'orologio. Era quello del nonno e quando me lo diede il babbo disse: Quentin, eccoti il mausoleo di ogni speranza e desiderio; è molto probabile, purtroppo, che te ne serva anche tu per ottenere il reducto absurdum di ogni umana esperienza, che non farà per i tuoi bisogni individuali più di quanto fece per i suoi o per quelli di suo padre. Non te lo do perché tu possa ricordarti del tempo, ma perché ogni tanto tu possa dimenticarlo per un attimo e non sprecare tutto il tuo fiato nel tentativo di vincerlo. Perché, disse, le battaglie non si vincono mai. Non si combattono nemmeno. L'uomo scopre, sul campo, solo la sua follia e disperazione, e la vittoria è un'illusione dei filosofi e degli stolti."
Author: William Faulkner

Carlos suggested."President Eisenhower?""Doesn't he qualify as a badass?" Carlos insisted."Look, he may have been president, but he doesn't exactly come to people's minds when you ask them to think of a badass.""All right. How about Kojak?" Carlos asked."That police detective show with Telly Savalas?" Sammy asked."Yeah, Kojak. He was a badass. Always cool under pressure.""All right," Sammy replied. "Let's just say, for the sake of argument, that Kojak was a bald badass. So what?'"So you have to imagine how Kojak would deal with this situation we have in front of us. He wouldn't be worried about whether this girl digs bald guys. He would just walk right up to her, knowing that he's a badass and just take care of business. You see, it's all in the delivery.""The delivery?""Yeah, the execution"
