“Historia (Inquiry); so that the actions of people will not fade with time.”

The Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus

"That is war... To defeat foes in the name of a country. The states affairs of the enemy are inconsequential."

Radiant Historia (videogame)

"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legends. Legends fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that give it birth comes again."

-Robert Jordan
The Wheel of Time

"Solomon saith: There is no new thing upon the earth. So that as Plato had imagination, that all knowledge was but remembrance; so Solomon giveth his sentence, that all novelty is but oblivion."

-Francis Bacon: Essays LVIII.
(Epígrafe en "El Inmortal" de Jorge Luis Borges)

"¿Y a mí qué me importa el futuro? Sin duda, Seldon lo habrá previsto y se habrá preparado para él. Llegarán otras crisis en el futuro, cuando el poder del dinero esté tan muerto como fuerza histórica como lo está ahora el de la religión. Que mis sucesores resuelvan sus problemas, como yo he resuelto el nuestro."

-Isaac Asimov

Citas de inspiración para "La Máquina del Tiempo..." -Poemario-

Estas son algunas citas que fueron inspiración para algunos de los poemas de "La Máquina del Tiempo y Otros Poemas Sobre el Tiempo-Espacio y el Olvido":

Todd: Fish in a pond, busy, busy. Lot's to do here and there.
 [...] Dry as a desert outside, no place to go. [...] Eat up. Get
 stronger. Think and hope, think and hope. Don't look now!
Oh, keep dreaming...There must be some other reason for
your insistence. [...] Defiance tastes like life itself. No river,
no water, dry as a desert. Darkness all around...The harvest
 moon is rising...Wraith are never ending. I know the future.
 Come inside! I’ll show you your destiny...

Stargate Atlantis
Season 4
Episode 19: Vegas

The Doctor: Time can be rewritten!
River: Not those times. Not one line! Don't you dare!
It's OK. It's OK, it's not over for you. You'll see me again.
You've got all of that to come. You and me, time and space.
You watch us run!

Doctor Who
Series 4
 Episode 9: Forest of the Dead

“Eckels felt himself fall into a chair. He fumble crazily at the
thick slime on his boots. He held up a clod of dirt, trembling
‘No, it can’t be. Not a little thing like that. No!’ Embedded
 in the mud, glistening green and gold and black, was a butterfly,
 very beautiful and very dead. ‘Not a little thing like that! Not a
 butterfly!’ cried Eckels. It fell to the floor, and exquisite thing,
 a small thing that could upset balance and knock down a line
 of small dominoes and then big dominoes and then gigantic
dominoes, all down the years across Time.”
Ray Badbury
“A Sound of Thunder” (710)
