Gabriel Garcia Marquez Died

Iconic Writer Gabriel García Márquez Has Passed Away

Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez died at the age of 87 on Thursday. The Colombian author of celebrated books like One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera was known for his unique, fantasy-meets-reality style of writing, known as magical realism, and he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1982. To celebrate his contribution to literature, take a look at some of the most inspiring, beautiful quotes from One Hundred Years of Solitude.

"There is always something left to love."

"There is always something left to love." — Gabriel Garcia Marquez

"It's enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment."

"'Tell him,' the colonel said, smiling, 'that a person doesn't die when he should but when he can.'"

"He dug so deeply into her sentiments that in search of interest he found love, because by trying to make her love him, he ended up falling in love with her."

"The secret of a good old age is simply an honorable pact with solitude."
