Federico García Lorca

To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves. What good was pride to me—and not seeing you and letting you lie awake night after night? No good! It only served to bring the fire down on me! You think that time heals and walls hide things, but it isn’t true, it isn’t true! When things get that deep inside you there isn’t anybody can change them. —  Federico García Lorca, Blood Wedding, II:1. (Dramatists Play Service, Inc. January 1, 2001) Originally published March 8, 1933.
