Mia Couto
“Listen, and you will realize that we are made not from cells or from atoms. We are made from stories.”
Mia Couto

Andrés Neuman
“Love and translation look alike in their grammar. To love someone implies transforming their words into ours. Making an effort to understand the other person and, inevitably, to misinterpret them. To construct a precarious language together.”
Andrés Neuman

W.S. Merwin
“Poetry is a way of looking at the world for the first time.”
W.S. Merwin

“Humanity lives in its fiction.”
Blaise Cendrars
