The driver warned me: Be careful, scholar, they kill in that house. I replied: If it's for love it doesn't matter.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The world isn't what it once was because there aren't many men like you left.
It was farcical.
Fiction was invented the day Jonas arrived home and told his wife that he was three days late because he had been swallowed by a whale.
He was aware he did not love her. He had married her because he liked her haughtiness, her seriousness, her strength, and also because of some vanity on his part, but as she kissed him for the first time he was sure there would be obstacle to their inventing true love.
I have waited for this opportunity for more than half a century, to repeat to you once again my vow of eternal fidelity and everlasting love.
