Gabriel Garcia Marquez Saying: To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else's heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.

Saying about Gabriel Garcia Marquez: She always had a headache, or it was too hot, always, or she pretended to be asleep, or she had her period again, her period, always her period.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez Quotes: I ask myself how I could give in to this perpetual vertigo that I in fact provoked and feared. I floated among erratic clouds and talked to myself in front of the mirror in the vain hope of confirming who I was.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez Saying: Her first reaction was one of hope, because his eyes were open and shining with a radiant light she had never seen there before. She prayed to God to give him at least a moment so that he would not go without knowing how much she had love him despite all their doubts, and she felt an irresistible longing to begin life with him over again so that they could say what they had left unsaid and do everything right that they had done badly in the past. But she had to give in to the intransigence of death. (Love in the Time of Cholera)

Saying about Gabriel Garcia Marquez: She felt so old, so worn out, so far away from the best moments of her life that she even yearned for those that she remembered as the worst... Her heart of compressed ash, which had resisted the most telling blows of daily reality without strain, fell apart with the first waves of nostalgia. The need to feel sad was becoming a vice as the years eroded her. She became human in her solitude.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez Quotes: I was asked the other day if I would be interested in the Nobel Prize, but I think that for me it would be an absolute catastrophe.

The only thing I really regret in life is not having a daughter.
