I like to read

Posted Feb 10 2013 10:34pm

On one wall of the living room, above a collection of volumes on philosophy and history, there is a framed quotation from Flavbert in spanish.

“Un modo de tolerar la existentia es perderse uno en la literatura en una perpetua origia.”

He translates it for me in these words: “One way of tolerating existence is to lose oneself in literature in a perpetual orgy.”

Anthony asks him what “perpetual orgy” means and seems impressed when Mr. Castro tells him “Endless Pleasure“.
