„There comes a time when you have no support, not even from friends, forget about mentors, and there’s no one to give you a hand“

— Roberto Bolaño
Context: Literature was a vast minefield occupied by enemies, except for a few classic authors (just a few), and every day I had to walk through that minefield, where any false move could be fatal, with only the poems of Archilochus to guide me. It’s like that for all young writers. There comes a time when you have no support, not even from friends, forget about mentors, and there’s no one to give you a hand; publication, prizes, and grants are reserved for the others, the ones who said “Yes, sir,” over and over, or those who praised the literary mandarins, a never-ending horde distinguished only by their aptitude for discipline and punishment — nothing escapes them and they forgive nothing. "Meeting with Enrique Lihn" (The New Yorker,December 22, 2008)

„The Eye never said good-bye to anyone. I never said good-bye to anyone either.“

— Roberto Bolaño
Context: One day I heard that The Eye had left Mexico. I wasn't surprised that he hadn't said good-bye. The Eye never said good-bye to anyone. I never said good-bye to anyone either. Mauricio ('The Eye') Silva

„How do you recognize a work of art?“

— Roberto Bolaño
Context: How do you recognize a work of art? How can it be kept apart, even if only for a moment, from its critics, commentators, its indefatigable plagiarists, its defacers and its final destiny in solitude? Simple — just translate it. Entre Paréntesis (2004) edited by Ignacio Echevarría, p. 223
