J Valor Quotes

"It was floating. Waiting. It had no sense of how long It had been in this state. Its awareness had retreated into a tiny core at the center of Its being, away from the searing torment of separation, Its very essence ripped apart. Never had It known such sensation. So It had retreated, further and deeper, wrapping Itself in a cocoon of Light; waiting only for a call, for an opening, that It might be reunited with Its Beloved. Waiting until... Something stirred within. Suddenly, there is a reaching, a pulling. Its awareness opens and It is caught in a field of gravity. It plunges down, irresistibly down toward the blue planet, unable to control or navigate."

Quotes About Pintar

"La Madre de Dios tenía siempre el dedo índice levantado cuando yo me sentaba delante, en el banco de los niños. Pero la expresión de su rostro era amable, y yo no le tenía miedo. Todo el tiempo llevaba el mismo vestido largo azul claro y tenía unos labios rojos muy bonitos. Y un día que el cura dijo que los lápices de labios se hacen con sangre de pulga y de otros bichos repugnantes, me pregunté por qué la Madre de Dios que había en el altar lateral se pintaría los labios. También se lo pregunté al cura, que me golpeó las manos con su regla hasta ponérmelas rojas y me mandó en seguida a casa. Estuve varios días sin poder mover los dedos." - Author: Herta Müller
