A Quote by Pablo Neruda on questions, destiny, and chile

Whom can I ask what I came
to make happen in this world?

Why do I move without wanting to,
why am I not able to sit still?

Why do I go rolling without wheels,
flying without wings or feathers,

and why did I decide to migrate
if my bones live in Chile?

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on heaven, afterlife, dogs, materialism, atheism, and pets

And I, a materialist who does not believe
in the starry heaven promised
to a human being,
for this dog and for every dog
I believe in heaven, yes, I believe in a heaven
that I will never enter, but he waits for me
wagging his big fan of a tail
so I, soon to arrive, will feel welcomed.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on dogs

in

No, my dog used to watch me
giving me the attention I need,
yet only the attention necessary
to let a vain person know
that he being a dog,
with those eyes, more pure than mine,
was wasting time, but he watched
with a look that reserved for me
every bit of sweetness...

O merry, merry, merry,
like only dogs know how to be happy
and nothing more, with an absolute
shameless nature.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on silence, winter, visitation, rain, bells, death, seeds, sprouting, germination, the visitor, and seasons

Once more I am the silent one
who came out of the distance
wrapped in cold rain and bells:
I owe to earth's pure death
the will to sprout.

I stood on the balcony dark with mourning...
hoping the earth would spread its wings
in my uninhabited love.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on visitation, absence, commonality, and equality

I ask permission to be like everybody else,
like the rest of the world and what's more, like anybody else:
I beg you, with all my heart,
if we are talking about me, since we are talking about me,
please resist blasting the trumpet during my visit
and resign yourselves to my quiet absence.
