“La frase 'todo tiempo pasado fue mejor' no indica que antes sucedieran menos cosas malas, sino que -felizmente- la gente las echa en el olvido. ”
Ernesto Sábato, El túnel

“A veces creo que nada tiene sentido. En un planeta minúsculo, que corre hacia la nada desde millones de años, nacemos en medio de dolores, crecemos, luchamos, nos enfermamos, sufrimos, hacemos sufrir, gritamos, morimos, mueren y otros están naciendo para volver a empezar la comedia inútil.”
Ernesto Sábato, El túnel

“Mi cabeza es un laberinto oscuro. A veces hay como relámpagos que iluminan algunos corredores. Nunca termino de saber por qué hago ciertas cosas.”
Ernesto Sabato, El túnel
