“La dictadura es como una aria y nunca llega a ser ópera.”
Emilia Pardo Bazán

“God punishes sins, but the world I see only punishes lack of foresight and blunders.”
Emilia Pardo Bazán

“Señor, ¿por qué no han de tener las mujeres derecho para encontrar guapos a los hombres que lo sean, y por qué ha de mirarse mal que lo manifiesten? (...) Si no lo decimos, lo pensamos, y no hay nada mas peligroso que lo reprimido y oculto, lo que se queda dentro.”
Emilia Pardo Bazán, Insolación
