"There is always something left to love." (Happy Birthday, Gabriel Garcia Marquez!)

Gabriel García Márquez, Colombian-born author and journalist and winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature, is 85 today. Affectionately known as “Gabo” to millions of readers, he is the patron saint of recovering creative writing majors and late-night corner bar philosophical debate.

My favorite line from One Hundred Years of Solitude: "There is always something left to love."

And then there's this:
“If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you, I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul. If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more. If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again. If I knew this is the last time I see you, I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.”
Yes, please.
