Favorite Julio Quotes

1. "What's the purpose of being with someone if they don't change your life? She said that, and Julio was present when she said it: that life only had purpose if you found someone who changed it, who destroyed your life."
Author: Alejandro Zambra
2. "I had this coming. I just have to take my medicine. I think I'll spend the weekend brooding about what a shitty friend I am and mourning the loss of the friendship. I might have Ben & Jerry over to keep me company. Or maybe Ernest and Julio Gallo.""Hey, no threesomes unless I get to watch."
Author: Amelia C. Gormley
3. "Just as we do not today differentiate between the Roman Republic and the imperial period of the Julio-Claudians when we think of the Roman Empire, so in the future no one will bother to make a distinction between the British Empire-led and the American-Republic-led periods of English-speaking dominance between the late-eighteenth and the twenty-first centuries. It will be recognized that in the majestic sweep of history they had so much in common--and enough that separated them from everyone else--that they ought to be regarded as a single historical entity, which only scholars and pedants will try to describe separately."
Author: Andrew Roberts
4. "El soberbio hace su gran concesión y dice "Yo soy yo y mis circunstancias", pero Edmundo vigilaba sus circunstancias, yo soy mi padre, mi rencor, mi universidad, mi máster imaginario, mis mentiras; soy mi madre, la venganza, la frente pronunciada, el mentón abrupto: soy Raimundo, Julio, Gregorio, mi contrato, mi jefe de personal; soy bailar y no creer y Cristina y soy criado por otros, siempre criado por otros. En cuanto a ser yo, qué predicado aceptaría puede el preso decir: yo soy quien se levanta a las siete y media de la mañana o ése es el reglamento de la prisión; en cuanto a ser, el yo exigía libertad, mas no la inútil libertad de escoger entre un jersey azul y un jersey amarillo sino la libertad de que sus circunstancias no le impusieran el participio de criado, el predicado de señor."
Author: Belén Gopegui
5. "Julio was willing to bet that Officer "I've Seen It All" Mac had never seen a horde of black-skinned demons wearing rags and armor and carrying swords and spears, dragging a naked woman and a chubby boy by a rope. No, he was willing to bet his left nut that even officer Mac had never seen such a thing."
Author: Brom
6. "Fue la época más cálida y febril de un verano cálido y febril. Los excrementos de tres millones de londinenses apestaban en las alcantarillas abiertas, incluida la mayor de nuestras alcantarillas (a pesar de que aquel año los ingenieros habían intentado inaugurar un elaborado sistema de alcantarillas subterráneas): el Támesis. Decenas de miles de londinenses dormían en sus porches o balcones, esperando la lluvia. Pero cuando cayó la lluvia fue como una ducha caliente, que se limitó a añadir una capa de humedad al calor. Julio se abatía sobre Londres aquel verano como una manta pesada y húmeda."
Author: Dan Simmons
7. "Las delicias de este mundo ya he gozado, Los di´as de mi juventud hace tanto, ¡tanto!, que se desvanecieron, Abril y Mayo y Julio esta´n lejanos, ¡Ya nada soy, ya nada me complace!"
Author: Friedrich Hölderlin
8. "I don't feel so sad when somebody dies, Julio, because they fly away to explore the stars and planets. When it's our turn we join them in exploring the universe."
Author: Gilbert Hernández
9. "Cultivo una rosa blanca,En julio como en enero,Para el amigo sinceroQue me da su mano franca.Y para el cruel que me arrancaEl corazon con que vivo,Cardo ni oruga cultivoCultivo una rosa blanca.I have a white rose to tendIn July as in January;I give it to the true friendWho offers his frank hand to me.And to the cruel one whose blowsBreak the heart by which I live,Thistle nor thorn do I give:For him, too, I have a white rose."
Author: José Martí
10. "I don't tweet very much. I still believe in the mystery of an artist. I believe in going out when I'm ready to sell my product. A lot of artists are out there every day. But I remember the Julio Iglesiases, the Jose Joses - and it was about the music."
Author: Romeo Santos
11. "Writers do not write what they want, they write what they can. When I was 21 I wanted to write like Kafka. But, unfortunately for me, I wrote like a script editor for The Simpsons who'd briefly joined a religious cult and then discovered Foucault. Such is life. And now, when I finish a long day of CNN-related fear and loathing mixed with eyeballing my own resolutely white screen, I do not crawl into bed with 500-page comic novels about "multicultural" London. I read Carver. Julio Cortázar. Amis's essays. Baldwin. Lorrie Moore. Capote. Saramago. Larkin. Wodehouse. Anything, anything at all, that doesn't sound like me."
