Quote of the Intermittent Time Period: Eduardo Galeano

“In earlier times, the nymph Echo knew how to speak. And she spoke with such grace that her words seemed always new, never before spoken by any mouth.

“But the goddess Hera, Zeus’s legal spouse, cursed her during one of her frequent fits of jealousy. And Echo suffered the worst of all punishments: she was deprived of her own voice.

“Ever since, unable to speak, she can only repeat.

“Nowadays, that curse is looked on as a virtue.”

— Eduardo Galeano, Mirrors
