“A mi edad, empezaba a darme cuenta de que, más que las cosas, lo importante es la ilusión que ponemos en ellas. Eso nos hace personas.”
Jaume Cabré, Jo confesso

“Ολη η παιδική μου ηλικία στο σπίτι έχει καταγραφεί στο μυαλό μου σαν διαφάνειες από πίνακες του Χόπερ, με την ίδια κολλώδη μυστηριώδη μοναξιά. Βλέπω τον εαυτό μου σαν μία από αυτές τις φιγούρες που κάθονται σε ξέστρωτο κρεβάτι, με ένα βιβλίο παρατημένο σε μια γυμνή καρέκλα, ή που κοιτούν από το παράθυρο ή κάθονται δίπλα σ' ένα λιτό τραπέζι και παρατηρούν τον άδειο τοίχο.”
Jaume Cabré, Jo confesso

“Generaciones y generaciones de baile frenético de millones de espermatozoides persiguiendo óvulos, concepciones casuales, muertes, aniquilaciones..., y ahora tú y yo estamos aquí, el uno frente al otro, como si no hubiera podido ser de ninguna otra manera. Como si sólo hubiera existido la posibilidad de un único árbol genealógico.”
Jaume Cabré, Jo confesso
