My favorite quote:
Celebración de las contradicciones:Celebration of contradictions by Eduardo Galeano
Desatar las voces, desensoñar los sueños: escribo queriendo revelar lo real maravilloso, y descubro lo real maravilloso en el exacto centro de lo real horroroso de América.
En estas tierras, la cabeza del dios Eleggúa lleva la muerte en la nuca y la vida en la cara. Cada promesa es una amenaza; cada pérdida, un encuentro. De los miedos nacen los corajes; y de las dudas, las certezas.
Los sueños anuncian otra realidad posible y los delirios, otra razón.
Al fin y al cabo, somos lo que hacemos para cambiar lo que somos. La identidad no es una pieza de museo, quietecita en la vitrina, sino la siempre asombrosa síntesis de las contradicciones nuestras de cada día.
En esa fe, fugitiva, creo. Me resulta la única fe digna de confianza, por lo mucho que se parece al bicho humano, jodido pero sagrado, y a la loca aventura de vivir en el mundo.

Eduardo Galeano. "Celebración de las Contradicciones/2."
Mi libro de cabecera, "El libro de los abrazos".



Turn loose the voices, undream the dreams. Through my writing, I try to express the magical reality, which I find at the core of the hideous reality of Latin America.
In these countries, the god Eleggua carries death in the nape of his neck and life in his face. Every promise is a threat, every loss a discovery. Courage is born of fear, certainty of doubt. Dreams announce the possibility of another reality, and delirium annouces another kind of reason.
After all, we are what we do to change what we are. Identity is no museum piece sitting stock-still in a display case, but rather the endlessly astonishing synthesis of the contradictions of everyday life.
I believe in that fugitive faith. It seems to me the only faith worthy of belief for its great likeness to the human animal, accursed yet holy, and to the mad adventure that is living in this world.
