“Gerardo; People can die from an excessive dose of the truth, you know.”

“أفضل لحظات الحياة هى تلك التي لا ندري فيها ما يجب علينا عمله ، لأننا عندئذ فقط يا صغيري نكتشف قوتنا الداخلية ، ميلنا الحقيقي”
Ariel Dorfman, Konfidenz

“Beware of turning into the enemy you most fear. All it takes is to lash out violently at someone who has done you some grievous harm, proclaiming that only your pain matters in this world. More than against that person's body, you will then, at that moment, be committing a crime against your own imagination.”
Ariel Dorfman
