Laura Esquivel
“Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us but we can't strike them all by ourselves”
Laura Esquivel, Like Water for Chocolate

Laura Esquivel
“You must take care to light the matches one at a time. If a powerful emotion should ignite them all at once, they would produce a splendor so dazzling that it would illuminate far beyond what we can normally see; and then a brilliant tunnel would appear before our eyes, revealing the path we forgot the moment we were born, and summoning us to regain the divine origins we had lost. The soul ever longs to return to the place from which it came, leaving the body lifeless.”
Laura Esquivel, Like Water for Chocolate
