Sergio Troncoso
“Words are the residue that I was there, that I loved my wife, that I kissed my children goodnight, that I sacrificed my life for them. Words are a curse. Life is a curse. Words escape life. Life escapes words. What in God's name am I? How does someone name a God? What is it to name yourself?”
Sergio Troncoso, Crossing Borders: Personal Essays

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“Two things are difficult about writing a novel. Starting and finishing”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom
