"He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves."
— ~ Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera (via lonequixote)
"If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more. If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again. If I knew this is the last time I see you, I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already."
— ― Gabriel García Márquez (1927 - 2014) (via notjustcookies)
"No matter what, nobody can take away the dances you’ve already had."

HIs writer’s best quotes
"The only regret I will have in dying is if it is not for love."
— Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1927-2014), Love in the Time of Cholera (via livefromthenypl)
"It’s enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment."
— Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude (via merulae)
"In the end all books are written for your friends. The problem after writing One Hundred Years of Solitude
was that now I no longer know whom of the millions of readers I am writing for; this upsets and inhibits me. It’s like a million eyes are looking at you and you don’t really know what they think."
— Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927 – April 17, 2014) in this altogether excellent 1981 Paris Review interview, a fine manifestation of the magazine’s mastery of the art of the interview. (via explore-blog)
