I have learned so much from you men... I have learned that everybody wants to live at the top of the mountain without realizing that true happiness lies in the way we climb the slope. I have learned that when a newborn first squeezes his father's finger in his tiny fist, he has caught him forever. I have learned that a man only has the right to look down on another man when it is to help him to stand up. I have learned so many things from you, but in the end most of it will be no use because when they put me inside that suitcase, unfortunately I will be dying. Gabriel Garcia Marquez: La Marioneta, The Puppet, If for a moment God would forget that I am a rag doll and give me a scrap of life… gracias, Gabriel…

Slide 50

Tantas cosas he aprendido de ustedes los hombres... He aprendido que todo el mundo quiere vivir en la cima de la montana, sin saber que la verdadera felicidad esta en la forma de subir la escarpada. He aprendido que cuando un recien nacido aprieta con su pequeno puno por vez primera el dedo de su padre, lo tiene atrapado para siempre. He aprendido que un hombre unicamente tiene derecho de mirar otro hombre hacia abajo, cuando ha de ayudarlo a levantarse. Son tantas cosas las que he podido aprender de ustedes, pero finalmente de mucho no habran de servir porque cuando me guarden dentro de esta maleta, infelizmente me estare muriendo... Gabriel Garcia Marquez: La Marioneta, Si por un instante Dios se olvidara de que soy una marioneta de trapo y me regalara un trozo de vida… gracias, Gabriel…
