Algunas veces las historias no son más que un grano de arena que se coló en una ostra. Alguien tiene que bajar al fondo si quiere su premio. Este es un "collar de cuentos"... More > donde en cada perla, si se nos permite, va engarzado un superviviente con varios asesinos, pájaros y hadas con saurios y cactos, escritores que empiezan con otros que se fueron, farsantes con fugitivos, saltamontes, saltimbanquis y al fin, perseguidores de paraísos. Todos hijos de insolaciones allá arriba, en el ático. ****************************** Sometimes stories are not more than a sand grain that strained in one oyster. Somebody must lower to the bottom if it wants his prize. This is a "necklace of tales", if it is allowed us, where every piece links a survivor with several assassins, birds and fairies with saurian and cactus, writers who begin with the others who went by, humbugs with fugitive, grasshopper, jugglers and finally pursuers of paradises.

More > Classical Latin: [ˈmaːr.kʊs ˈtʊl.lɪ.ʊs ˈkɪ.kɛ.roː]; Greek: Κικέρων, Kikerōn; 3 January 106 BC – 7 December 43 BC) was a Roman philosopher, politician, lawyer, orator, political theorist, consul, and constitutionalist. He came from a wealthy municipal family of the Roman equestrian order, and was one of Rome's greatest orators and prose stylists.His influence on the Latin language was so immense that the subsequent history of prose in not only Latin but European languages up to the 19th century was said to be either a reaction against or a return to his style. According to Michael Grant, "the influence of Cicero upon the history of European literature and ideas greatly exceeds that of any other prose writer in any language".
