  • Pursuing

    It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.

  • If I knew

    Gabriel García Márquez, Colombia

    (Submitted by Lola Claver, Spain)

    If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you, I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul. If I knew that this would be the last time you'd pass through this door, I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more. If I knew that this would be the last time I'd hear your voice, I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again. If I knew this would be the last time I'd see you, I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly that you knew it already.
