"As if death did not swarm, mixed with life [...] and did not step forward at the slightest inattention of the defenseless human being, who in that immense frame of nature was so small, so insignificant, that it no longer seemed to a leaf, among the billions of those that fall dead, and that others replace"
"Come se la morte non brulicasse, mescolata con la vita [...] e non si facesse avanti alla minima disattenzione dell’indifeso essere umano, che in quell’immensa cornice di natura risultava tanto piccolo, tanto insignificante, da non sembrare più di una foglia, fra le miliardi di quelle che cadono morte, e che altre sostituiscono"
from Vento Forte by Miguel Angel Asturias
