“Every day silence harvests its victims. Silence is a mortal illness.”
Natalia Ginzburg

“We become adolescents when the words that adults exchange with one another become intelligible to us.”
Natalia Ginzburg

“Pienso que en la vida de cada uno de nosotros existe un libro similar, que de pequeños no nos limitamos simplemente a leer, sino que inspeccionamos y rebuscamos en cada uno de sus rincones como si de una habitación se tratara. Un libro así, rebuscado como una habitación, escrutado o interrogado como una cara en cada rasgo y arruga, nunca podremos juzgarlo como se juzga un libro, porque para nosotros ha abandonado la zona de los libros y ha pasado a vivir a la zona de la memoria y de los afectos.”
Natalia Ginzburg
