whole body. It is not the result of a judgment. We do not arrive at it by
way of rules. We either feel beauty or we don’t."

Jorge Luis Borges, Seven Nights

"The task of art is to transform what is continuously happening to us, to transform all these things into symbols, into music, into something which can last in man’s memory. That is our duty. If we don’t fulfill it, we feel unhappy."

Jorge Luis Borges, The Task of Art

"From my weakness, I drew strength that never left me."

"There is no whole self. He who defines personal identity as the private possession of some depository of memories is mistaken."

Jorge Luis Borges, Selected Non - Fiction

"Being an agnostic means all things are possible, even God, even the Holy Trinity. This world is so strange that anything may happen, or may not happen. Being an agnostic makes me live in a larger, a more fantastic kind of world, almost uncanny. It makes me more tolerant."

Jorge Luis Borges

"Our destiny is not terrifying because it is unreal; it is terrifying
because it is irreversible and iron-bound."

Jorge Luis Borges, A New Refutation of Time

"All language is of a successive nature; it does not lend itself to reasoning on
eternal, intemporal matters."
