“I write because I am poorly adjusted to reality. ("The Writer's Kitchen")”
Rosario Ferré

“La imaginación, lo que tú llamas la mentira, no es menos real porque no pueda verse. Nuestras pasiones ocultas, nuestras emociones ambiguas, nuestras preferencias inexplicables; de eso trata la verdadera verdad.”
Rosario Ferré, The House on the Lagoon

“¿Será que nuestra historia es tan peligrosa que puede llegar a ser revolucionaria?”
Rosario Ferré, The House on the Lagoon
