Gabriel García Marquez jest chory na raka i spisał dla nas kilka najważniejszych odpowiedzi na najważniejsze pytania.

Można na kogoś patrzeć z góry?
A man has the right to look down on somebody, only when he is helping him to get up.

Po co szczerość?
Nobody would remember you if you keep your thoughts secret. Force yourself to express them.
I would probably not say everything I think, but definitely think all I say.
Always tell, what you feel and do what you think.
I would value things not for what they are worth, but for what they represent.
If God allowed me one more piece of life, I would dress simpler, would wallow in the sunlight, leaving uncovered,
not only my body but also my soul.

Starzeć się musisz?
I would prove to men how wrong they are to think that they stop falling in love as they get older, since they actually start getting older as soon as they stop falling in love.
To the old, I would show them how death comes not with the ageing process but with forgetting.

A dzieci?
I would give wings to the children, but I would leave the child alone so that he could learn how to fly on his own.
I have learned that when a newborn grabs his father’s thumb, he takes a hold on him forever.
