By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept by Paulo Coelho
“By the River Piedra I sat down and wept. There is a legend that everything that falls into the waters of this river -- leaves, insects, the feathers of birds -- is transformed into the rocks that make the riverbed. If only I could tear out my heart and hurl it into the current, then my pain and longing would be over, and I could finally forget.”
Paulo Coelho

A Matter of Blue by Jean-Michel Maulpoix
“We listen to the inexhaustible chant of the sea within us, as it rises and falls in our heads, like the approach and retreat of the strange desire we have for heaven, for love, and all that we cannot touch with our hands.”
Jean-Michel Maulpoix

Graham Greene
“Eternity is said not to be an extension of time but an absence of time, and sometimes it seemed to me that her abandonment touched that strange mathematical point of endlessness, a point with no width, occupying no space.”
Graham Greene

John Steinbeck
“All great and precious things are lonely.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Jack London
“You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”
Jack London

Rabindranath Tagore
“Those who are near me do not know that you are nearer to me than they are
Those who speak to me do not know that my heart is full with your unspoken words
Those who crowd in my path do not know that I am walking alone with you
Those who love me do not know that their love brings you to my heart”
Rabindranath Tagore

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“With her Florentino Ariza learned what he had already experienced many times without realizing it: that one can be in love with several people at the same time, feel the same sorrow with each, and not betray any of them. Alone in the midst of the crowd on the pier, he said to himself in a flash of anger: 'My heart has more rooms than a whorehouse.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera
