“i am almost one hundred years old, and i have seen everything change, even the position of the stars in the universe, but i have not seen anything change yet in this country…”

“ they make new constitutions, new laws, new wars every three months, but we are still in colonial times.”

-uncle leo xii, love in the time of cholera by gabriel garcia marquez
