This little bilingual book is an absolute treasure chest brimming with wisdom in celebration of the richness and diversity of the Latino heritage. It features quotations from a colorful array of world-renowned Latinos, from Sandra Cisneros to Gabriel García Márquez to Gloria Estefan.

Among my favorites:

“In Spain, the dead are more alive than the dead of any other country in the world.”
PABLO NERUDA

“If your enemy turns to flee, give him a silver bridge.”
PROVERBIO

“Besides teaching, teach your students to doubt what you have taught.”
JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

The Spanish translations here are delightfully melodic and lyrical:

“Love is so short and forgetting is so long.”
“Es tan corto el amor y es tan largo el olvido.”
PABLO NERUDA

  
 
This gorgeous collection, rich with insight and pulsing with the passion of the Latino culture, would make a fabulous holiday gift for absolutely anyone.

“There are short books for which you need a very long life to understand them as they deserve to be understood.”
FRANCISCO DE QUEVEDO Y VILLEGAS
