Favorite Quotes

"Soy la misma muchacha salvaje que hace años trajiste a tu lado." – Raíz Salvaje, Juana de Ibarbourou

"I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet." – The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath

"He floated along thinking he would like to love the world as it was, and he felt a great deal of accomplishment for the occasions when he did, since the other was so easy. Hate took no effort other than to look about." – Cold Mountain, Charles Frazier
