Excerpts

The End

This is the ending quote of One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez (1967): 

“Before reaching the final line, however, he had already understood that he would never leave that room, for it was foreseen that the city of mirrors (or mirages) would be wiped out by the wind and exiled from the memory of men at the precise moment 
when Aureliano Babilonia would finish deciphering the parchments, and that everything written on them was unrepeatable since time immemorial and forever more, because races condemned to one hundred years of solitude did not have a second opportunity on earth.”

Hope you enjoyed this post. Leave in the comments what you thought about this small excerpt or if you read the book One Hundred Years of Solitude tell me your thoughts about it.
