silence of indigenous peoples, playing dumb, how they came to understand that no invader could ever really get the upper hand, no matter how fierce his face or strong his weapon or cunning his tricks

people who are being subjected to an authority that they have not freely chosen, and remember what they ve learned you cannot really capture anybody until you have heard his voice If you don t want to be bottled up by your enemy, you know what to do Never, ever apologize if you haven t done anything wrong No 4 of Garc a s golden rules Keep your sorrys and your excuse mes and your please forgive mes, above all keep your please, please forgive mes for the one moment in life when you ll really need them, need those words Loneliness is what should terrify you most,than a slap or a kick or hunger even And that s when those words, please, please forgive me, will be all that separates you from the pit and swamp of the deepest despair So don t squander them on matters of no consequence The world is cursed because people do not apologize for their sins or crimes or merely their cowardice, but it s evencursed because people apologize much too much they use their regrets as a way of not really probing what they have done, as permission to persevere in their blindness, absolving themselves without having atoned or understood When they praise you or suck up to you or proclaim the lie that you are the best, worthier than anyone else on this earth, beware Always answer these accolades courteously, be compassionate toward those who have yet to be enlightened, but do not let their easy smiles or their fraudulent adulation lull you into complacency Garc a says, Remember that he who lovesin a relationship always ends up screwed So, his class asks if that means that we should never love intensely, give ourselves entirely to another human being Another human being, Garc a answered, now perfectly composed, a cause, a revolution, someone or something beyond us and above us and better than us oh, I never meant that we should not surrender to forcesbeautiful than our own small selves Only that we must be aware, not be deluded about the sacrifices and losses that such a surrender may entail, be ready to pay the price Think, think before you leap and then leap, follow your heart A thought that does not have emotion is empty an emotion without action is bogus But do not let others know everything you think, never surrender that, no matter how passionate you may be, how anxious for love Always keep a little something back that is only yours, entirely, completely yours I ll give you all the best grade, each and every one of you, Garc a had said the first time he returned an essay a brief response to the question Is there any way in which misfortune can be welcomed or is it always to be abhorred It s that, my young ones everyone equally rewarded, or throw darts at names on a wall with a blindfold on and let the darts, each representing a different grade, determine who does better I won t collaborate, Garc a said, in their attempt to get you to eat one another, to fight one another now so you can keep on fighting one another out there I just won t So I ll let you decide What s it to be, darts in an absurd and arbitrary and cruel universe or all for one and all for all Why is indifference worse than murder I think Garc a committed suicide because he hurt the person he loved, and he or she would not forgive him Garcia Remember that he who lovesin a relationship always ends up screwed Students Does that mean we should never love intensely, give ourselves
