2. "The more ardently I see humanity as a glorious abstract that must conform to my ideal of how the world should be, the harder it is for me to love the person on the other side of the picket line who is holding up progress. I can love the downtrodden in the abstract, but as I shivered under the bridge that night with Jorge, I realized that it's harder to love the illegal immigrant with the bottle-slashed face and the body unwashed for weeks, the workers gathering to eat day-old bread and chicken and rice out of foam containers, the crowd of thousands clamoring for bread and fish and healing, the unclean woman hoping to touch the hem of the Savior's robe."
Author: Alisa Harris

5. "Insotit de Matilde si Jorge, care avea patru ani, m-am dus sa traiesc in muntii din Cordoba, la o ferma fara apa curenta si curent electric, in localitatea Pantanillo. Sub maiestuosul cer instelat, m-am simtit impacat. Ceva asemanator cu ceea ce spune Henry David Thoreau: "M-am dus in padure pentru ca voiam sa traiesc in meditatie, sa infrunt doar faptele esentiale ale vietii, sa vad daca puteam trai si sa invat ceea ce era de invatat; ca nu cumva sa descopar, apropiindu-ma de moarte, ca nu traisem cu adevarat"."

Author: Jorge Luis Borges

To glorify the occasional fulfillment of this function, to treasure ancient thoughts of others, to remember with incredulous amazement that the doctor universal is thought, is to confess our languor or barbarism. Every man should be capable of all ideas, and I believe that in the future he will be." (Jorge Luis Borges, "Pierre Menard, Author of Don Quixote, 1939)"

19. "- Nasmej mi se. Nasmej mi se pa da na tvom licu, barem jednom ugledam svetlost onog sveta. Podseti me na toplinu pekare u koju sam, vracajuci se iz škole sa tašnom u ruci po snežnom zimskom danu, ulazila da kupim zemicku; podseti me kako sam po vrelom letnjem danu sa keja radosno skakala u more; podseti me na prvi poljubac, na prvi zagrljaj, na orah do cijeg sam se samog vrha popela sama, na letnje vece u kojem sam bila van sebe, na noc u kojoj sam se veselo napila, na ušuškanost u mom jorganu i na lepo dete koje me je sa ljubavlju pogledalo. Sve je to u onoj zemlji, i ja želim tamo da odem, pomozi mi, pomozi mi da bih mogla srecna da prihvatim to da me je sve manje svaki put kad udahnem."

21. "[W]hen I put Jorge in the library I did not yet know he was the murderer. He acted on his own, so to speak. And it must not be thought that this is an 'idealistic' position, as if I were saying that the characters have an autonomous life and the author, in a kind of trance, makes them behave as they themselves direct him. That kind of nonsense belongs in term papers. The fact is that the characters are obliged to act according to the laws of the world in which they live. In other words, the narrator is the prisoner of his own premises."
Author: Umberto Eco
22. "In that face, deformed by hatred of philosophy, I saw for the first time the portrait of the Antichrist, who does not come from the tribe of Judas, as his heralds have it, or from a far country. The Antichrist can be born from piety itself, from excessive love of God or of the truth, as the heretic is born from the saint and the possessed from the seer. Fear prophets, Adso, and those prepared to die for the truth, for as a rule they make many others die with them, often before them, at times instead of them. Jorge did a diabolical thing because he loved his truth so lewdly that he dared anything in order to destroy falsehood."
Author: Umberto Eco
23. "We have inhabited both the actual and the imaginary realms for a long time. But we don't live in either place the way our parents or ancestors did. Enchantment alters with age, and with the age.We know a dozen Arthurs now, all of them true. The Shire changed irrevocably even in Bilbo's lifetime. Don Quixote went riding out to Argentina and met Jorge Luis Borges there. Plus c'est la même chose, plus ça change."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
