"(y creo que por eso escribo: para no olvidar)"
- aniko villalba

Haikus de Mario Benedetti

después de todo 
la muerte es sólo un síntoma 
de que hubo vida 


pasan las nubes 
y el cielo queda limpio 
de toda culpa 


quisiera verte 
en vigilia o en sueños 
o dondequiera 


con la verdad 
no se juega se juega 
con la mentira

"Let someone love you just the way you are-– as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room."

"So if people ever look down upon you for crying for fictional characters, you should give them a gentle, pitying look and feel bad for them. If they’ve never cried for a fictional character, then they’ve never loved one (and what a joy that is). If they’ve never cried at a book, a movie, a piece of music, then they’ve missed one of the great pleasures life has to offer. Just because fiction does not contain things that are real doesn’t mean it doesn’t contain truth, and we find it through the alchemy of our tears."
Cassandra Clare

Often as I lie awake I wonder if you are also lying awake. Are you in pain or feeling alone? You drew me from the darkest period of my life, sharing with me the sacred mystery of what it is to be an artist. I learned to see through you and never compose a line or draw a curve that does not come from the knowledge I derived in our precious time together. Your work, coming from a fluid source, can be traced to the naked song of your youth. You spoke then of holding hands with God. Remember, through everything, you have always held that hand, grip it hard, Robert, and don’t let go.

The other afternoon, when you fell asleep on my shoulder, I drifted off, too. But before I did, it occurred to me looking around at all of your things and your work and going through years of work in my mind, that of all your work, you are still your most beautiful. The most beautiful work of all.

"One of the rules that I have as a writer is: 'Never sit down to write anything —whether it's a newspaper article or a novel, anything — until you know precisely the one person is who you're speaking to.' And have it be one person only. Each one of my books have been written to a different person. It’s a really important decision as I’m beginning a project because it affects the way you speak. We speak to different people differently."

"When you’re trying to dismantle the patriarchy, why nitpick the women within your own movement? I’m not talking about constructively critiquing feminist movements (obviously, like Danielle said, mainstream feminism has serious inclusion issues), I’m talking about “let’s focus the convo on which pop stars aren’t labeling themselves correctly.” It’s just cheap, and it gets at no real problems. It also completely disregards the issue of access to information. I knew a lot of girls in high school who never wanted to call themselves feminists but who had little notion of what that can term for mean for so many women, nor of all of its internal movements. There’s an assumption that women who don’t identify with feminism have heard every argument, have read all the bell hooks, have been part of the circles we—those who assume the label—have had access to. It seems wrong to yell at a girl for not calling herself a feminist without recognizing that she might not know much about feminism to begin with."

"I would also like to mention this little thing that happened called the Yalta Conference where Winston Churchill essentially gave Poland away to a communist regime which is actually the sole reason the country still struggles. And because of that right there, as far as I’m concerned, the UK has no fucking right to belittle us for not being powerful and rich, because Churchill built their peace and their power in part on death, hunger and exploitation in my country."
