Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

The adolescents of my generation, greedy for life, forgot in body and soul about their hopes for the future until reality taught them that tomorrow was not what they had dreamed, and they discovered nostalgia. ― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Memories of My Melancholy Whores. (Vintage 2006) Originally published October 19th 2004.
