Escrito con tinta verde

"Tu cuerpo se constela de signos verdes
como el cuerpo del árbol de renuevos.
No te importe tanta pequeña cicatriz luminosa:
mira al cielo y su verde tatuaje de estrellas."

(Octavio Paz, Poemas del Alma)

Banderas de nadie

"I know I'm supposed to hate humans,
but there's something about them.
They don't just survive,
they discover, they create...
I mean, just look at what they do with food!"

(Rémy, Ratatouille)

Luces de Roma

"¡Oh Roma en tu grandeza, en tu hermosura,
huyó lo que era firme y solamente
lo fugitivo permanece y dura!"

(Francisco de Quevedo)

Lévy flight

"John, the kind of control you're attempting is not possible.
If there's one thing the history of evolution has taught us,
it's that life will not be contained.
Life breaks free.
It expands to new territories.
It crashes through barriers painfully,
maybe even dangerously,
but - well, there it is...
All I'm saying is that life finds a way."

(Jurassic Park)
