Quotes About Margaritas

"¿Qué hace un cronopio cuando se enamora? Pierde la cabeza, eso y se dedica a cortar margaritas. Cuando a un cronopio le rompen el corazón, llora un poco, y luego un poco más. Se sabe "desdichado y húmedo". Pero mientras llora, piensa en que a todos alguna vez les rompen el corazón. En que enamorarse significa también llorar un poco. Y que a diferencia de los famas, el cronopio llora cuando tiene ganas, y como tiene ganas, llora un poco más." - Author: Julio Cortázar

Quotes About Lots Of Friends

"I wonder if my father, given the chance, would have wished to go back to the time before he made all that money, when he just had one store and we rented a tiny apartment in Queens. He worked hard and had worries but he had a joy then that he never seemed to regain once the money started coming in. He might turn on the radio and dance cheek to cheek with my mother. He worked on his car himself, a used green Impala with carburetor trouble. They had lots of Korean friends that they met in church and then even in the street, and when they talked in public there was a shared sense of how lucky they were, to be in America but still have countrymen near." - Author: Chang rae Lee

Im not sure the understand everything they see, though, so they dont fully grasp what theyre stealing their names from. Like, I think Gnome ChompSky just thought it sounded tough and Chuck the Norriser came from watching too many episodes of Walker, Texas Ranger. They believe Chuck Norris is a demigodWho doesnt?" - Author: Lish McBride
