“Clamé al cielo, y no me oyó.
Mas, si sus puertas me cierra,
de mis pasos en la Tierra
responda el cielo, no yo.”
José Zorrilla, Don Juan Tenorio

“Leave me in Granada in the middle of paradise where my soul wells with poetry;
Leave me until my time comes and I may intone a fitting song.
Yes, I want my memorial stone in this land.
Granada! Holy place of the glory of Spain,
Your mountains are the white tents of pavilions,
Your walls are the circle of a vase of flowers,
Your plain a Moorish shawl embroidered with colour,
Your towers are palm trees that imprison you”
Jose Zorilla

“¡Aparta, piedra fingida!
Suelta, suéltame esa mano,
que aún queda el último grano
en el reloj de mi vida.
Suéltala, que si es verdad
que un punto de contrición
da a un alma la salvación
de toda una eternidad,
yo, santo Dios, creo en ti;
si es mi maldad inaudita,
tu piedad es infinita…
¡Señor, ten piedad de mí!”
José Zorrilla, Don Juan Tenorio
