1. "—Yo me voy con Jordan —dijo Lauren tomando la mitad del taco—. Prefiero no interferir en el festival de tensión sexual que Min y tú estáis disfrutando esta mañana.—Todas las mañanas —corrigió Jordan.—Para ti todo es consecuencia de la tensión sexual porque tus padres son el señor y la señora Supercristianos —le dije a Lauren—. Nosotros, los judíos, sabemos que las tensiones subyacentes se deben siempre a un nivel bajo de azúcar en la sangre.—Sí, bueno, vosotros matasteis a mi Salvador — añadió Lauren, y Jordan se despidió con la mano—. No permitamos que ocurra de nuevo."
Author: Daniel Handler
2. "Also, people are not often aware of the way the United States' policies influence what happens in places like Haiti or El Salvador or Nicaragua. Or in Columbia right now."
Author: Edwidge Danticat
3. "El golpe militar no surgió de la nada; las fuerzas que apoyaron a la dictadura estaban allí, pero no las habíamos percibido.Algunos defectos de los chilenos que antes estaban bajo la superficie emergieron en gloria y majestad durante ese período.No es posible que de la noche a la mañana se organizara la represión en tan vasta escala sin que la tendencia totalitaria existiera en un sector de la sociedad; por lo visto no éramos tan democráticos como creíamos. Por su parte el gobierno de Salvador Allende no era inocente como me gusta imaginarlo; hubo ineptitud, corrupción, soberbia. En la vida real héroesy villanos suelen confundirse, pero puedo asegurar que en los gobiernos democráticos, incluyendo el de la UnidadPopular, no hubo jamás la crueldad que la nación ha sufrido cada vez que intervienen los militares."
Author: Isabel Allende
4. "What were he and his friends doing, really, other than hanging from a branch, sticking their tongues out to catch the sweetness? He thought about the people he knew, with their excellent young bodies, their summerhouses, their cool clothes, their potent drugs, their liberalism, their orgasms, their haircuts. Everything they did was either pleasurable in itself or engineered to bring pleasure down the line. Even the people he knew who were "political" and who protested the war in El Salvador did so largely in order to bathe themselves in an attractively crusading light. And the artists were the worst, the painters and the writers, because they believed they were living for art when they were really feeding their narcissism. Mitchell had always prided himself on his discipline. He studied harder than anyone he knew. But that was just his way of tightening his grip on the branch."
Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
5. "We negotiated with the Honduran government the establishment of a regional military training center, for training central American forces, but the primary motivation for doing that was to be able to bolster the quality, improve the quality of the El Salvadoran fighting forces."

Author: John Negroponte
7. "There was the situation in Nicaragua where the Sandinistas had taken over a couple of years earlier. There was a civil war going on in El Salvador and there was a similar situation in Guatemala. So Honduras was in a rather precarious geographic position indeed."
Author: John Negroponte
8. "I asked this heroic pet lover how it felt to have died for a schnauzer named Teddy. Salvador Biagiani was philosophical. He said it sure beat dying for absolutely nothing in the Viet Nam War."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
9. "A veces pensaba que si conseguía situación como un producto de mi estructura mental o de mis carencias espirituales me libraría del dolor, pero como eso me revelaba como a alguien débil en exceso dependiente del cariño de una madre-ángel-amante salvadora, nunca llegaba hasta el final de ese tipo de consideraciones, y para no dejarme llevar por la desesperación la mayor parte de las veces intentaba convencerme de que estaba venciendo mi dolor nadando de espaldas. Pero sabía perfectamente que me engañaba a mí mismo."
Author: Orhan Pamuk
10. "I have a very deep care for Latin America, and, of course, for what was going on in El Salvador."
Author: Raul Julia
