Gabriel García Márquez was one of the greatest novelists of his time. His novel One Hundred Years of Solitude established this fact, and in 1982 he received the Nobel Prize for Literature.

A wonderful and inspiring author, Márquez died at the age of 87 last week on April 17. Read more about his life and accomplishments on The New York Times.


No medicine cures what happiness cannot.

The heart’s memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good.

What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.

— Gabriel García Márquez
