“What's the purpose of being with someone if they don't change your life? She said that, and Julio was present when she said it: that life only had purpose if you found someone who changed it, who destroyed your life.”
Alejandro Zambra, Bonsaï

“To read is to cover one's face. And to write is to show it.”
Alejandro Zambra, Formas de volver a casa

“¿Qué sentido tiene estar con alguien si no te cambia la vida?
[...] la vida sólo tenía sentido si encontrabas a alguien que te la cambiara, que destruyera tu vida.”
Alejandro Zambra
