Algo termina, algo comienza

Los largos silencios en un blog nunca auguran nada bueno, y este caso no es una excepción: me temo que, tras más de quince años de dar intermitentemente la vara, La Biblioteca de Babel…

Neil Gaiman
“One describes a tale best by telling the tale. You see? The way one describes a story, to oneself or to the world, is by telling the story. It is a balancing act and it is a dream.

Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Patrick O'Brian
“Of course she will put on a cap,’ said Sophie, with a pitying look. ‘How could she possibly receive strange gentlemen without a cap? But her hair must be dressed under it.”
Patrick O'Brian, Desolation Island

Patrick O'Brian
“Put those pistols down at once,’ he said coldly. ‘Do not you know it is very rude to point a pistol at a person you do not mean to kill? For shame, Villiers. Where were you brought up?”
Patrick O'Brian, The Surgeon's Mate

P.G. Wodehouse
“Freddie experienced the sort of abysmal soul-sadness which afflicts one of Tolstoy's Russian peasants when, after putting in a heavy day's work strangling his father, beating his wife, and dropping the baby into the city's reservoir, he turns to the cupboards, only to find the vodka bottle empty.”
P.G. Wodehouse , The Best of Wodehouse: An Anthology

“As for Gussie Finknottle, many an experienced undertaker would have been deceived by his appearance and started embalming on sight.”
