Apaches (El Laberinto)
We never confess that we have married a woman we do not love, a woman who may love us perhaps, but who is incapable of being her true self. Swann says: "And to think I have wasted the best years of my life with a woman who was not my type." The majority of modern men could repeat that sentence on their deathbeds. And with the change of one word, so could the majority of women.
Octavio Paz [tr.L.Kemp]
