Jorge Luis Borges
“Heaven and hell seem out of proportion to me: the actions of men do not deserve so much.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Jorge Luis Borges
“A writer - and, I believe, generally all persons - must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.”
Jorge Luis Borges, Twenty-Four Conversations with Borges: Interviews by Roberto Alifano 1981-1983

Jorge Luis Borges
“A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face.”
Jorge Luis Borges, The Aleph and Other Stories

Jorge Luis Borges
“Whatever one man does, it is as if all men did it. For that reason, it is not unfair that one disobedience in a garden should contaminate all humanity; for that reason it is not unjust that the crucifixion of a single Jew should be sufficient to save it.”
Jorge Luis Borges, Labyrinths: Selected Stories and Other Writings

Jorge Luis Borges
“Being with you and not being with you is the only way I have to measure time.”
Jorge Luis Borges
