“A infância é uma época desgraçada, cheia de temores infundados, como o medo de monstros imaginários e do ridículo. Do ponto de vista literário, não tem suspence, já que, salvo excepções, as crianças costumam ser um pouco desenxabidas. Além disso, não têm poder- os adultos decidem por elas e fazem-no mal, inculcam-lhes as suas próprias ideias erróneas sobre a realidade e depois os miúdos passam o resto das suas vidas a tentar livrarem-se delas.”

No menciono pistolas porque pronto abandonó su uso; considera que las armas de fuego, además de ser imprecisas, no son dignas de un valiente.

“Por fortuna no me enamoré del Zorro locamente, como le ocurre a la mayoría de las mujeres al conocerlo; siempre he mantenido la cabeza fría con respecto a él. Me di cuenta a tiempo de que nuestro héroe sólo es capaz de amar a aquellas que no le corresponden, y decidí ser una de ellas. Ha pretendido casarse conmigo cada vez que le falla una de sus novias o se queda viudo —eso ha ocurrido un par de veces—, y me he negado. Tal vez por eso sueña conmigo cuando come pesado. Si yo lo aceptara como marido, muy pronto se sentiría atrapado y yo tendría que morirme para dejarle libre, como hicieron sus dos esposas. Prefiero esperar nuestra vejez con paciencia de beduino. Sé que estaremos juntos cuando él sea un anciano de piernas enclenques y mala cabeza, cuando otros zorros más jóvenes le hayan reemplazado, y en el caso improbable de que alguna dama le abriera su balcón y él no fuera capaz de treparlo. ¡Entonces me vengaré de las penurias que el Zorro me ha hecho pasar!”

Los filos de las armas no chocaban en una elegante coreografía, como en las clases de esgrima, sino que apuntaban directamente al enemigo para atravesarlo. La caballerosidad no existía, los golpes eran feroces y no se daba cuartel a nadie. La sensación que transmitía el acero al entrar en la carne de un hombre era indescriptible. Se apoderó de él una mezcla de despiadada exaltación, de repugnancia y triunfo, perdió la noción de la realidad y se transformó en una bestia.”
“Hasta ese momento no tenía conciencia cabal de su doble personalidad, por una parte Diego de la Vega, elegante, melindroso, hipocondríaco, y por otra el Zorro, audaz, atrevido, juguetón.

“A deprins astfel sa citeasca expresia corporala si a descoperit ca nu întotdeauna cuvintele corespund intentiilor. A priceput ca batausii sunt îndeobste usor de învins, ca cei mai vorbareti sunt si cei mai putin sinceri, ca aroganta e tipica ignorantilor, ca lingusitorii sunt niste javre.”

But Zorro was based on the California bandits. Joaquin Murrieta and Tiburico Vásquez.”

They said, “If you like that, you’re going to like this: ‘Zorro the Gay Blade.’” I decided I was going to go out and raise the money and develop my own projects. And that’s what I did.

I loved movies like Zorro and Desperado and The 13th Warrior, and other movies like that, that I have done and that contain some action, but it’s not the only thing that I do.”

Alejandro: Why not? You think I could get two?”

Elena: I have broken the fourth commandment, padre.
