“Sometimes, you think you have forgotten everything, that the rust and dust of the years have destroyed all the things we once entrusted to their voracious appetite. But all it takes is a noise, a smell, a sudden, unexpected touch, and suddenly the alluvion of time sweeps pitilessly over us, and our memories light up with all the brilliance and fury of a lightning flash”
Julio Llamazares, The Yellow Rain

“الزمن كفيل بمحو الجراح ، الزمن مطر أصفر صبور يخمد أعتى النيران في هدوء، لكن هناك نيراناً تظل مشتعلة تحت الأرض، وشقوقاً جافة وعميقة جدا في الذاكرة، لا يمكن محوها ولا حتى بالموت، فيحاول الإنسان أن يتعايش معها، ويتراكم الصمت والصدأ على الذاكرة، وعندما يعتقد أن كل شيء قد انتهى ، فإن رسالة أو صورة يمكن أن تفجر وتمزق طبقة الجليد التي تغطي الذاكرة.”
Julio Llamazares, La lluvia amarilla

“وهذه كانت طريقتي الوحيدة للحياة وسط الخراب والموت, الإمكانية الوحيدة لاحتمال العزلة والخوف من الجنون, أذكر عندما كنت طفلاَ, كنت استمع الى حكايات أبي عن أحداث زمن آخر, عن أجدادي وشيوخ القرية الذين يجلسون حول النار, وتفكيري في أنهم كانوا في هذه الحياة قبل أن أولد يخنقني ويصيبني بالكآبة, كنت أستمع إليهم دون أن يراني أحد-أجلس على مقعد في أحد الأركان-استمع اليهم الى أن يغلبني النعاس وأحول حكاياتهم الى ذكريات خاصة بي, أتخيل الأماكن والأشخاص الذين يتحدثون عنهم, اعطيهم ملامحهم كما أريد, تماماَ كرسم مشهد لأمنية أو تفكير, أشكل ذكرياتي بهذه الطريقة لتكون موازية لذكرياتهم.”
