When Oscar Wilde said Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation, and Jorge Luis Borges said I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities I have visited.

Me crucifican y yo debo ser la cruz y los clavos. Me tienden la copa y yo debo ser la cicuta. Me engañan y yo debo ser la mentira. Me incendian y yo debo ser el infierno. Debo alabar y agradecer cada instante del tiempo. Mi alimento es todas las cosas. El peso preciso del universo, la humillación, el júbilo. Debo justificar lo que me hiere. No importa mi ventura o mi desventura. Soy el poeta. El cómplice - Jorge Luis Borges De «La Cifra» (1981)
