“…the final brilliance of life that would never, through all eternity, be repeated again”

Friday, April 25, 2014

It’s like he’s talking about himself here:

Then he crossed his arms over his chest and began to listen to the radiant voices of the slaves singing the six o'clock Salve in the mills, and through the window he saw the diamond of Venus in the sky that was dying forever, the eternal snows, the new vine whose yellow bellflowers he would not see bloom on the following Saturday in the house closed in mourning, the final brilliance of life that would never, through all eternity, be repeated again

~Gabriel Garcia Marquez, The General In His Labyrinth, 1990
