"We use words to understand each other and even, sometimes, to find each other."
"There are times when it is best to be content with what one has, so as not to lose everything."
"What kind of world is this that can send machines to Mars and does nothing to stop the killing of a human being?"
“Perhaps it is the language that chooses the writers it needs, making use of them so that each might express a tiny part of what it is.”
"Every man has his own patch of earth to cultivate. What’s important is that he dig deep."
"Inside us there is something that has no name, that something is what we are."
José Saramago (1922-2010)
