The Angel’s Game

“Poetry is written with tears, fiction with blood, and history with invisible ink.”

“All interpretation or observation of reality is necessarily fiction. In this case, the problem is that man is a moral animal abandoned in an amoral universe and condemned to a finite existence with no other purpose than to perpetuate the natural cycle of the species. It is impossible to survive in a prolonged state of reality, at least for a human being. We spend a good part of our lives dreaming, especially when we’re awake.”

“Human beings believe just as they breathe – in order to survive.”

“It seems that in the advanced stages of stupidity, a lack of ideas is compensated for by an excess of ideologies.”

“The only way you can truly get to know an author is through the trail of ink he leaves behind him. The person you think you see is only an empty character: truth is always hidden in fiction.”

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
