“Sólo muy de vez en cuando se puede estar seguro de que se va a vivir para siempre jamás, y ésa es una de las curiosidades de la vida. A veces sucede cuando uno se levanta al amanecer, ese momento de meliflua solemnidad, y se sale al jardín y se queda uno allí quieto y solo; y se levanta mucho la mirada, más y más arriba, y se observa cómo muda de color el pálido cielo azul, sonrojándose, cómo va sucediendo lo insólito y maravilloso, hasta que el Oriente casi le hace a uno clamar, y el corazón parece que cesara de latir ante la inexplicable, imperturbable majestad del sol naciente. Desde hace miles y miles de años, esto es lo que acontece cada mañana, y es entonces cuando durante un instante se sabe que uno va a vivir siempre.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
