Happy Saturday! You did it, Hart Beat! I had to work this weekend so I thought I’d play it low tonight and share some “quotes” by Pablo Neruda. I’ve been trying to research whether or not the famed poet actually said these things, or where, or in what language. Alas, Hart Beat, I have failed you. So we’re just going to take these quotations with a grain of salt and enjoy them for the Neruda potential that they hold. Oh the romance.
In one kiss, you’ll know all I haven’t said.
I no longer love her, that’s certain, but maybe I love her.
Love is so short and forgetting is so long.
Someday, somewhere — anywhere, unfailingly,
you’ll find yourself, and that, and only that,
can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life.
I want to do with you what spring does with cherry trees.
Today is today, and yesterday is gone.
There is no doubt.
Shyness is a condition foreign to the heart —
a category, a dimension which leads to loneliness.
The moon lives in the lining of your skin.

And more Neruda for you, Hart Beat.
