Gabriel García Márquez

   'One Hundred Years of Solitude.''s author, the Nobel prize-winning writer and journalist Gabriel Garcia Marquez dies in Mexico, today....

He wrote that; I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of Him.:))
 How honest he was, I hope he is well now :)))
RIP our beloved Gabo :))

'In journalism just one fact that is false prejudices the entire work. In contrast, in fiction one single fact that is true gives legitimacy to the entire work. That's the only difference, and it lies in the commitment of the writer. A novelist can do anything he wants so long as he makes people believe in it.'
'The only difference today between Liberals and Conservatives is that the Liberals go to mass at five o'clock and the Conservatives at eight.'

On Fidel Castro: "A man of austere habits and insatiable illusions, 
with an old-fashioned formal education of cautious words and subdued tones, 
and incapable of conceiving any idea that is not colossal."
Article in honour of Castro's 80th birthday in 2006
