Jorge Luis Borges

Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire. —  Jorge Luis Borges, Labyrinths: Selected Stories and Other Writings. (New Directions; Augmented edition 1964)
