Augusto Roa Bastos
Quotations


Anyone who attempts to relate his life loses himself in the immediate. One can only speak of another.

The things that have come into being change continually. The man with a good memory remembers nothing because he forgets nothing.

Facts canít be recounted; much less twice over, and far less still by different persons. Iíve already drummed that thoroughly into your head. What happens is that your wretched memory remembers the words and forgets whatís behind them.

Man is an idiot. He doesnít know how to do anything without copying, without imitating, without plagiarizing, without aping. It might even have been that man invented generation by coitus after seeing the grasshopper copulate.
