You need to read One Hundred Years of Solitude. These 10 quotes show you why

 For some reason, the more someone tells us we need to read something, the more work it feels like to actually crack it open and read it. So we totally understand that sentiment—that’s why we’re using 10 soul-reaching quotes for Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s incredible novel, which won the recently deceased author a Nobel Prize for Literature. Take a peek…

 

“There is always something left to love.”

 

“It's enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment.”

 

“They were so close to each other that they preferred death to separation.”

 

“Then he made one last effort to search in his heart for the place where his affection had rotted away, and he could not find it.”

 

“He really had been through death, but he had returned because he could not bear the solitude.”

 

“’Things have a life of their own,’ the gypsy proclaimed with a harsh accent. ‘It's simply a matter of waking up their souls.’”

 

“He soon acquired the forlorn look that one sees in vegetarians.”

 

“The world was reduced to the surface of her skin and her inner self was safe from all bitterness.”

 

“One minute of reconciliation is worth more than a whole life of friendship!”

 

“The rain would not have bothered Fernanda, after all, her whole life had been spent as if it were raining.”

 

 

So, show of hands: Who’s adding this classic to their must-read list?
