Excerpt: Cien Años de Soledad

Page 195, General Moncada

“Lo que me preocupa — agregó — es que de tanto odiar a los militares, de tanto combatirlos, de tanto pensar en ellos, has terminado por ser igual a ellos. Y no hay un ideal en la vida que merezca tanta abyección.”

 

English translation by Ryan 

“What worries me”, he added, “is that because of  your opposition to the military, your hate and your focus towards them has caused you to become like them. There’s not a belief system in the world that deserves such degradation.”
