Franz Kafka
“This afternoon the pain occasioned by my loneliness came upon me so piercingly and intensely that I became aware that the strength which I gain through this writing thus spends itself, a strength which I certainly have not intended for this purpose.”
Franz Kafka, Diaries of Franz Kafka

Alberto Fuguet
“Estaba condenado con la maldición del que sabe dos idiomas y entiende, secretamente, que no domina del todo ninguno de los dos. Ahora era capaz de comparar; todo se me multiplicaba por dos. En cada sitio terminaba optando por el punto de vista ajeno. Ahora veo todo, esté donde esté, como un extranjero.”
Alberto Fuguet

Ernesto Sábato
“¿Cuándo empezó esto que ahora va a terminar con mi asesinato? Esta feroz lucidez que ahora tengo es como un faro y puedo aprovechar un intensísimo haz hacia vastas regiones de mi memoria: veo caras, ratas en un granero, calles de Buenos Aires o Argel, prostitutas y marineros; muevo el haz y veo cosas más lejanas: una fuente en la estancia, una bochornosa siesta, pájaros y ojos que pincho con un clavo. Tal vez ahí, pero quién sabe: puede ser mucho más atrás, en épocas que ahora no recuerdo, en períodos remotísimos de mi primera infancia. No sé. ¿Qué importa, además?”
Ernesto Sábato, Sobre héroes y tumbas

Juan Villoro
“Desde su regreso a México, el pasado fluía hacia adelante y la vida fluía hacia atrás. Demasiadas cuentas pendientes. El cambio, del que tanto habló en París con Jean-Pierre, parecía una cripta mal cerrada.”
Juan Villoro, El testigo

Franz Kafka
“My job is unbearable to me because it conflicts with my only desire and my only calling, which is literature. Since I am nothing but literature and can and want to be nothing else, my job will never take possession of me, it may, however, shatter me completely, and this is by no means a remote possibility.”
Franz Kafka, Diaries of Franz Kafka
