Carlos Fuentes


"One wants to tell a story, like Scheherazade, in order not to die. It’s one of the oldest urges of mankind. It’s a way of stalling death."

Oh! I love this quote! I love 1001 Arabian Nights. I read the book when I was about eight. A lot of it was over my head, but from that day on, I knew that I wanted to invent stories and share them with the world.
