“Nunca dejes que la realidad te estropee una buena historia.”

“U ljudskom biću ne postoji savršenstvo, ali se može biti savršen idiot ako tome težiš.”
Francesc Miralles, El cuaderno de Aroha

“La felicidad la pueden experimentar en toda su intensidad sólo los que han vivido grandes altibajos, porque es un juego de contrastes. Los que nadan siempre por el espectro medio de las emociones nunca conocerán la esencia de la vida. Esa es la enseñanza del pozo: a veces hay que tocar fondo para entender la grandeza del cielo.”
