“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild by the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter.”

– Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

If you like this quote, consider reading Love in the Time of Cholera because it’s full of quotes just like it.  I have been enjoying this book so much, I’ve been carrying it in my purse everywhere I go in case I get a chance to sit down and read even for 5 minutes.
