  • 13. Thus they went on living in a reality that was slipping away, momentarily captured by words, but which would escape irremediably when they forgot the values of the written letters. At the beginning of the road into the swamp they put up a sign that said MACONDO and another larger one on the main street that said GOD EXISTS.Wednesday, February 1, 12 8

  • 15. No one doubted the divine origin of the demonstration except José Arcadio Buendía, who without changing expression watched the troop of people who gathered around the chestnut tree one morning to witness the revelation once more. He merely stretched on his stool a little and shrugged his shoulders when Father Nicanor began to rise up from the ground along with the chair he was sitting on. “Hoc est simplicissimus,” José Arcadio Buendía said. “Homo iste statum quartum materiae invenit.”Wednesday, February 1, 12 10

  • 22. “There must have been three thousand of them,” he murmured. “What?” “The dead,” he clari!ied. “It must have been all of the people who were at the station. The woman measured him with a pitying look. “There haven’t been any dead here.”Wednesday, February 1, 12 15

  • 24. The link was born on the night when he casually mentioned Colonel Aureliano Buendía and Gabriel was the only one who did not think that he was making fun of somebody. Even the proprietress, who normally did not take part in the conversation argued with a madams wrathful passion that Colonel Aureliano Buendía, of whom she had indeed heard speak at some time, was a !igure invented by the government as a pretext for killing Liberals.Wednesday, February 1, 12 17

  • 31. He liked to go from room to room. As in a gallery of parallel mirrors, until Prudencio Aguilar would touch him on the shoulder. Then he would go back from room to room, walking in reverse, going back over his trail, and he would !ind Prudencio Aguilar in the room of reality. But one night, two weeks a!ter they took him to his bed, Prudencio Aguilar touched his shoulder in an intermediate room and he stayed there forever, thinking that it was the real room.Wednesday, February 1, 12 22
  • 32. He dreamed that he was going into an empty house with white walls and that he was upset by the burden of being the !irst human being to enter it. In the dream he remembered that he had dreamed the same thing the night before and on many nights over the past years and he knew that the image would be erased from his memory when he awakened because that recurrent dream had the quality of not being remembered except within the dream itself.Wednesday, February 1, 12 23

  • 44. José Arcadio Buendía dreamed that night that right there a noisy city with houses having mirror wails rose up. He asked what city it was and they answered him with a name that he had never heard, that had no meaning at all, but that had a supernatural echo in his dream: Macondo. On the following day he convinced his men that they would never !ind the sea. He ordered them to cut down the trees to make a clearing beside the river, at the coolest spot on the bank, and there they founded the village.Wednesday, February 1, 12 30
  • 45. Before reaching the !inal line, however, he had already understood that he would never leave that room, for it was foreseen that the city of mirrors (or mirages) would be wiped out by the wind and exiled from the memory of men at the precise moment when Aureliano Babilonia would !inish deciphering the parchments, and that everything written on them was unrepeatable since time immemorial and forever more, because races condemned to one hundred years of solitude did not have a second opportunity on earth.Wednesday, February 1, 12 31
