Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

… ideas that had often fluttered around her head like nocturnal birds but dissolved into a trickle of feathers when she tried to catch hold of them. There they were, simple, precise, just as she would have liked to say them.  — Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera (Alfred A. Knopf, 1988)
