"Do you know the works of Machado?"
"No. I know his name."
"He was a schoolteacher and he married a very beautiful young girl whom he loved very much. And she died. And so he became a great poet."
"I’m not going to become a great poet."
"Perhaps not. But even were you to do so, it would be of little help to you. Machado would have traded every word, every poem, every verse he ever wrote for one more hour with his beloved."
Happy 21 !
