Life Quotes by Spanish Authors
I like to live poor... but with a lot of money.
The path of youth takes a whole life.
Every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí, and I ask myself, wonderstruck, what prodigious thing will he do today, this Salvador Dalí.
It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.
Like the smell of roses that comes from the bushes
on a May morning, there are soft loves
which you neither feel coming, nor see when they arrive
through the loving door that the heart opens for them
by itself, as opens in August
the flower of dew in the evening.
And with no sound or complaint, no cries, or songs,
soft and lonely, like the breath of angels,
in us they take life, they run through our blood
and they, beautiful loves, are reborn from the spirit where they lived.
Look for these loves ..., look for them,
if you have someone who can offer them to you;
since these are the only ones that last
in this passing life.
Rosalía de Castro
Follas novas (New Leaves)
Galician 19th century poetry
You know the worst thing is freedom. Freedom of any kind is the worst for creativity. You know, Dalí spent two months in jail in Spain, and these two months were the most enjoyable and happy in my life. Before my jail period, I was always nervous, anxious. I didn’t know if I should make a drawing, or perhaps make a poem, or go to the movies or the theatre, or catch a girl, or play with the boys. The people put me in jail, and my life became divine. Tremendous!
