Flag of Argentina

“I have preferred to teach my students not English literature

but my love for certain authors, or, even better,

certain pages, or even better than that, certain lines.

One falls in love with a line, then with a page, then with an author.

Well, why not? It is a beautiful process.” 
~Jorge Luis Borges

Argentine short story writer, poet, essayist, and translator
