“Come sleep with me: We won't make Love, Love will make us.”
Julio Cortázar

“Andábamos sin buscarnos, pero sabiendo que andábamos para encontrarnos”
Julio Cortázar, Rayuela

“Lo que mucha gente llama amar consiste en elegir una mujer y casarse con ella. La eligen, te lo juro, los he visto. Como si se pudiera elegir en el amor, como si no fuera un rayo que te parte los huesos y te deja estaqueado en la mitad del patio. Vos dirás que la eligen porque-la-aman, yo creo que es al vesre. A Beatriz no se la elige, a Julieta no se la elige. Vos no elegís la lluvia que te va a calar hasta los huesos cuando salís de un concierto.”
Julio Cortázar, Rayuela
