Jorge Luis Borges

***************

The central problem
of reality is the
sand of memory

***************

Democracy is
an incomprehensible
series of effects

***************

Immortality
is a fight between two bald
men over a comb

***************

To die for art is
easier than to live for
God the destroyer

***************

A translation is
truth in the divine language
of uncertainty

***************

The empire of love
is built on a river of
resigned solitude

***************

Life itself is a
quotation that corrupts life’s
quotation itself

***************

Causality is
a dream that suppresses the
fact of Paradise

***************

The future devours
posterity; it is an
ignorant tiger

***************

Religion is the
coronation of the sphere
of the infinite

***************

There is a single
moment in which one finds out:
time can’t be measured
