“You can not fully read a book without being alone. But through this very solitude you become intimately involved with people whom you might never have met otherwise, either because they have been dead for centuries or because they spoke languages you cannot understand. And, nonetheless, they have become your closest friends, your wisest advisors, the wizards that hypnotize you, the lovers you have always dreamed of.

Antonio Muñoz Molina

“لكن الموسيقيّ يعرف أن الماضي غير موجود . قالها فجأة كما لو أنه ينفي فكرة لم أعبر عنها. أولئك الذين يرسمون أو يكتبون يمضون وقتهم في مراكمة الماضي على أكتافهم ، بالكلمات أو اللوحات . أما الموسيقيّ فهو دائماً في الفراغ . تكف موسيقاه عن الوجود في اللحظة التي يكف فيها هو عن عزفها إنه الحاضر الصرف”
Antonio Muñoz Molina, El invierno en Lisboa

“كان يكتب الرسائل و لا ينتظرها حتى توصل إلى حياة خفيّة لا يتدخل فيها مرور الوقت و لا الواقع”
Antonio Muñoz Molina, El invierno en Lisboa
