Matilde’s Recent Updates

“Las cosas hermosas, las obras de arte, los objetos sagrados, sufren, como nosotros, los efectos imparables del paso del tiempo. Desde el mismo instante en que su autor humano, consciente o no de su armonía con el infinito, les pone punto y final y las entrega al mundo, comienza para ellas una vida que, a lo largo de los siglos las acerca también a la vejez y a la muerte. Sin embargo, ese tiempo que a nosotros nos marchita y nos destruye, a ellas les confiere una nueva forma de belleza que la vejez humana no podría siquiera soñar en alcanzar.”
Matilde Asensi, The Last Cato

“—El arte y la cultura aumentan la armonía, la tolerancia y la comprensión entre las personas”
Matilde Asensi, El último catón

“—Te dije que todo es relativo, todo es temporal y todo es mudable. Y que siempre, siempre, tenemos la oportunidad de cambiar.”
Matilde Asensi, El regreso del catón
