Solitude is the profoundest fact of the human condition. Man is the only being who knows he is alone.
More Octavio Paz quotes :
Art is an invention of aesthetics, which in turn is an invention of philosophers... What we call art is a game.Octavio Paz
Literature is the expression of a feeling of deprivation, a recourse against a sense of something missing. But the contrary is also true: language is what makes us human. It is a recourse against the meaningless noise and silence of nature and history.Octavio Paz
