Quotes by Octavio Paz

"Deserve your dream."

"Solitude is the profoundest fact of the human condition. Man is the only being who knows he is alone."

"Love is an attempt to penetrate another being, but it can only be realized if the surrender is mutual."

"Beyond myself, somewhere,
I wait for my arrival."

"because two bodies, naked and entwined,
leap over time, they are invulnerable,
nothing can touch them, they return to the source,
there is no you, no I, no tomorrow,
no yesterday, no names, the truth of two
in a single body, a single soul,
oh total being..."
