Favorite Querencia Quotes

1. "In the bullring, the terrified bull always returns to same spot as if it is a place of safety. It is called the querencia. In writing, I had found my querencia. My place, my passion."
Author: Chloe Thurlow
2. "...se ahonda en la anomalía, en lo repugnante y mezquino como si nuestra norma fuese la del respeto y la generosidad y la rectitud y hubiese que analizar microscópicamente cuanto se sale de ella: como si la mala fe y la tradición, la malquerencia y la voluntad de daño no formaran parte de esa norma y fueran cosas excepcionales, y merecieran por ello todos nuestros desvelos y nuestra máxima atención. Y no es así."
Author: Javier Marías
3. "In bullfighting there is an interesting parallel to the pause as a place of refuge and renewal. It is believed that in the midst of a fight, a bull can find his own particular area of safety in the arena. There he can reclaim his strength and power. This place and inner state are called his querencia. As long as the bull remains enraged and reactive, the matador is in charge. Yet when he finds his querencia, he gathers his strength and loses his fear. From the matador's perspective, at this point the bull is truly dangerous, for he has tapped into his power."

Today's Quote

I read Greek myths. I read about far off places, Venice and Paris. I read about men who searched for things they could not find at home, and women who fell in love with the wrong person and waited for the arrival of their beloved for so long that a year was no different from a single day. The same thing was happening to me. Years were passing. I was already a woman, and I still wasn't done reading."
