Gabriel García Márquez, Colombian native and Nobel Prize-winning author of “Cien Años de Soledad” (100 Years of Solitude) and “El amor en los tiempos del cólera” (Love in the Time of Cholera), has died at the age of 87.

The literary great was treated in April for infections and dehydration at a Mexican hospital. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his illness.

Sr. García is credited with popularizing “magical realism,” a genre “in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination,” as the Nobel committee described it.

Sr. García was sometimes referred to as the most significant Spanish-language author since Miguel de Cervantes, the 16th century author of “Don Quixote”.

In memory of his life, I present to you 15 amazing, inspiring and beautiful quotes by Sr. García.

“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”

If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again. If I knew this is the last time I see you, I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.”
