A FAREWELL LETTER FROM A GENIUS*
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, famous writer from Colombia ( familiarly known as "Gabo" in
his native country), and Nobel prize winner for literature in 1982, has retired from public
life for reasons of health. He has a form of cancer which is terminal. He has sent a
farewell letter to his friends and it has been circulated around the Internet.
It is recommended reading because it is moving to see how one of the
best and most brilliant of writers expresses himself & with sorrow. The following
slides will show what he says\u2026
If God, for a second, forgot what I have
become and granted me a little bit more of
life, I would use it to the best of my ability.
I wouldn't possibly, say everything
that is in my mind, but I would be
more thoughtful of all I say\u2026I
would give merit to things not for
what they are worth, but for what
they mean to express..
