Jorge Luis Borges
Born August 24, 1899 | Died June 14, 1986
Argentine writer, essayist, and poet
"Life and death have been lacking in my life."
"To die for a religion iseasier than to live it absolutely."
"In general, every country hasthe language it deserves."
"Any life is made up of a singlemoment, the moment in which aman finds out, once and for all,who he is."
"I cannot walk through the suburbs in the solitude of the night without thinking that the night pleases us because it suppresses idle details, just as our memory does."
"The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off; perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things."
