Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he’ll eventually make some kind of career for himself as writer.

Cualquier hombre que sigue trabajando no es un fracaso. Él tal vez no pueda ser un gran escritor, pero si se aplica a las virtudes antiguas trabajar duro , constantemente, con el tiempo va a hacer algún tipo de carrera para sí mismo como escritor.

Being a poet is one of the unhealthier jobs–no regular hours, so many temptations!

¡Ser un poeta es uno de los trabajos menos saludables- no hay horarios regulares, y tantas tentaciones!

Elizabeth Bishop

La escritura llega con el viento… / Writing comes with the wind…

Marguerite Duras

Her English Bio

“La escritura llega con el viento,

está desnuda, es la tinta, es lo escrito, y pasa como nada pasa en la vida, nada, excepto eso,

la vida.”


“Writing comes like the wind.

It’s naked, it’s made of ink, it’s the thing written, and it passes like nothing else passes in life, nothing more,

except life itself.”

“Todo tiene su tiempo y sazón, todas las tareas bajo el sol: tiempo de nacer, y tiempo de morir; tiempo de plantar y tiempo de arrancar lo plantado; tiempo de matar y tiempo de sanar; tiempo de destruir y tiempo de construir; tiempo de llorar y tiempo de reír; tiempo de hacer duelo y tiempo de bailar; tiempo de arrojar piedras y tiempo de recogerlas; tiempo de abrazar y tiempo de desprenderse; tiempo de buscar y tiempo de perder; tiempo de guardar y tiempo de desechar; tiempo de rasgar y tiempo de coser; tiempo de callar y tiempo de hablar; tiempo de amar y tiempo de odiar; tiempo de guerra y tiempo de paz.”

Una cita para lunes

“There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under heaven:a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. What does the worker gain from his toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on men.” 

Eclesiastés 3:1-10

A quote for Mink Monday

citas/quotes, de la vida, Inpirador/Inspirational

I will try, read well, I’ll try. “What is it that you’ll try?” is the question that comes immediately and vivid to your thoughts. This is what I’ll try every Monday on Mink. A quote, ‘una cita’ like we say in Spanish, that has and serves as a written guide to this journey of mine. Whether is to fortify or that had slap the face of a writer, or words just spoken to my ear from those who make this journey of mine a reason to smile or to think the journey over or just to teach.

The weekend was tumultuous and while I found an escape between the brick walls of The Northern Island alongside my little ones. It wasn’t until yesterday that I found words that thought me how to deal with a human characteristic: “inside wrath”. They come from one of my favorite catholic authors, Priest Ignacio Larrañaga, who through his writing and exercises has thought me to have a better praying life and commute with my Creator. No, is not to preach but to share.

From his book Itinerary towards God, I found in the title Homage to silence these words:

“…the silence of the mind corresponds to the peace of the heart”

Also at the end,

“It is always the same: to silence the mind and surrender”

Itinerary towards God

Good practices for when the inside wrath or rage, as you wish to call it, takes over us. Silence the mind, your inner thoughts, surrender it in the hands of Who will give you peace, breath the serenity silence has given and live. And if you have time do as I did, dance to the music of some plena, or whatever you may like.
