P 7 It came about simply because we had nothing else to do. Game of seduction always adds a little zest to life. You go to bed with someone just because its a bit of a dull day?
P 8 Atleast thsi whole episode has gained me another reader.
P 10 They were afraid of any change that would upset the world they had grown used to. freedom continues be the thing I prize most in the world. I realised that I could do absolutely anything except force another person to follow me in my madness, in my lust for life. I dont regret the painful times. I bear the scars as if they were medals. I know that freedom has a high price, as high as that of slavery. the only difference is that you pay with pleasure and a smile, even when that smile is dimmed by tears.
P 11 A sunny sunday that doesnt reflect my mood at all.
P 12 A man whose soul is losing love as if it were losing blood. immersed in their little lives that only happen at weekends.
P 15 Although it was part of the rules of the game not to mention any extramarital affairs.
P 16 Until one morning, I will wake up and find I am thinking about something else, and then I will know the worst is over. My heart might be bruised but it will recover, and become capable of seeing beauty of life once more. It happened before and it will happen again. I am sure. When someone leaves its because someone else is about to arrive - I will find love again.
P 17 the more beautiful everything around me the more wretched I feel. -- Clive Owen of closer
P 18 Stability is inseparable from a deep sense of tedium. Freedom is not the absence of commitments. But the ability to choose and commit myself to - what is best for me. I dont know what rest of my life will be like. That why its better to live cherishing a dream than face the possibility that it might all come to nothing.
P 19 The more she rejects me the more interested I become. She tells me stories about her work and ends up falling in love with me
But you love me and I love you, isnt that right? I dont know if you are asking me if I like your company, the answer is yes. If on the otherhand you are asking me if I could live without you, the answer is also yes.
P 20 you are always looking for adventure in order to forget more important things. You always want the adrenaline flowing in your veins and you forget that the only thing that should be flowing through them is blood.
P 25 Its very comfortable being married and knowing that I can always return to her arms, meanwhile enjoying all the independence in the world.
P 26 I am the best husband in the world because I want her to go home feeling that I still love her. I dont know why I want to give that impression, perhaps because, deep down, I know that Madrid dream will eventually end.
P 27 who could love someone without humbling herself.
P 29. All you have to do is pay attention. Lessons always arrive when you are ready.
P 30 I dont know how long this dream will continue, but I decide to live each moment as if it were the last.
I am no longer someone dreaming of becoming something. I am the shepherd crossing the desert, but where is the alchemist who helps him to carry on?
P 31 being misunderstood by one's contemporaries is surely just part and parcel of being a great artist.
P 33 favor bank funda
P 35. I am loved by my readers and loathed by my critics. >From the moment my book sold 1m copies, I ceased to be a misunderstood genius. I understand for the first time that all the frustrations I felt about previous love affairs and marriages had nothing to do with the women involved, but with my own bitterness. In order to be able to find her I first had to find myself.
P 37 what is fidelity? The feeling that I possess a body and a soul that arent mine.
Do you imagine I havent been to bed with with other men during all these years we have been together? -- I dont care and I dont want to know.

P 38 I dont know if everyone is unhappy but they are all busy.
