From an email
that I received.... Gabriel Garcia Marquez, great Latin American writer, has said goodbye to the public life due to complications in his health, lymphatic cancer. He has sent a letter to his friends; and thanks to the Internet, we are able to share it. I recommend you to continue reading, because this short text written by one of the most brilliant Latin American of the past years is really inspiring. Here are some of the text I extracted from my email. Here's his thoughts:
Enjoy reading.....
1) I would probably not say everything I think but definitely think all I say
2) I would value things not for what they are worth, but for what they represent
3) I would prove to men how wrong they are to think that they stop falling in love as they get older, since they actually start getting older as soon as they stop falling in love
4) I would give wings to the children, but I would leave the children alone so that he could learn how to fly on his own
5) To the old, I would show them how death comes not with the ageing process but with forgetting.
So many things I have learnt from you.....
I have learned that everybody wants to live on top of the mountain, forgetting that how we climb is all that matters.
I have learned that a man has the right to look down on somebody only when he is helping him to get up.
I have learned that when a newborn grabs his mother's thumb, he takes a hold on her forever.
Always tell, what you feel and do what you think.
If I knew that today it would be the last time that I will see you, I will embrace you strongly to be the guardian of your soul.
If I knew that these would be the last minutes that I will see you, I would say to you, "I Love You" and wouldn't assume you know it.
There is always morning where life gives us another opportunity to make things good.
Keep always close to you, your dear ones, and tell them how much you need them and love and take care of them.
Take time to say "I am Sorry", "Forgive Me", "Thank You" and all the nice and lovely words you know.
Nobody would remember you if you keep your thoughts secret.
Force yourself to express them.
Thanks For Reading
Just Me
