“Five minutes are enough to dream a whole life, that is how relative time is.”
Mario Benedetti

“Tengo la horrible sensación de que pasa el tiempo y no hago nada y nada acontece, y nada me conmueve hasta la raíz”
Mario Benedetti, La tregua

“Ella me daba la mano y no hacía falta más. Me alcanzaba para sentir que era bien acogido. Más que besarla, más que acostarnos juntos, más que ninguna otra cosa, ella me daba la mano y eso era amor.”
Mario Benedetti, La tregua
