About meyo, que me figuraba el Paraiso
bajo la especie de una biblioteca.
- Jorge Luis Borges (Poema de los Dones)

When I imagine Heaven,
I have always pictured it as a kind of library.
- Jorge Luis Borges (Poem of the Gifts)

Siis kui ma olen ettekujutanud Paradiisi,
See on olnud alati raamatukogu sarnane.
- Jorge Luis Borges (Annetiste luuletus)
