Julio Cortazar

Julio Cortazar

The best literature is always a take [in the musical sense]; there is an implicit risk in its execution, a margin of danger that is the pleasure of the flight, of the love, carrying with it a tangible loss but also a total engagement that, on another level, lends the theater its unparalleled imperfection faced with the perfection of film. I don’t want to write anything but takes.More Julio Cortazar quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The more a book is like an opium pipe, the more the Chinaman reader is satisfied with it and tends to discuss the quality of the drug rather than its lethargic effects.More Julio Cortazar quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We know that attention acts as a lightning rod. Merely by concentrating on something one causes endless analogies to collect around it, even penetrate the boundaries of the subject itself: an experience that we call coincidence, serendipity – the terminology is extensive. My experience has been that in these circular travels what is really significant surrounds a central absence, an absence that, paradoxically, is the text being written or to be written.More Julio Cortazar quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Time is born in the eyes, everybody knows that.More Julio Cortazar quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There was a time when I thought a great deal about the axolotls. I went to see them at the aquarium at the Jardin des Plantes and stayed for hours watching them, observing their immobility; their faint movements. Now I am an axolotl.More Julio Cortazar quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
