“Ölülerin bile sana ait değil. Ölülerin için tören yapıp dua okutamazsın, dua edersin. Ama kimse ne için ettiğini bilmez. Ağlarsın ama gizlice, kimsenin göremeyeceği şekilde. Senden alamayacakları tek şey hatıraların ve kaybettiklerinin acısı."


Dulce Chacón, La voz dormida

“La desesperación es una forma de negar la verdad, cuando asumirla supone aceptar un dolor insoportable.”
Dulce Chacón, La voz dormida Edición EspeciaL

Dulce Chacón, La voz dormida
