Анто́нио Мача́до Руис — испанский поэт «поколения 1898 года», драматург, мыслитель-эссеист.


„Держите глаза широко открытыми, дабы видеть мир таким, каков он есть; и откройте их еще шире, дабы видеть мир иным, чем он есть; и — еще шире, дабы увидеть мир лучшим, чем он есть.“

„Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again. Wanderer, there is no road-- Only wakes upon the sea.

Caminante, son tus huellas el camino, y nada más; caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar. Al andar se hace camino, y al volver la vista atrás se ve la senda que nunca se ha de volver a pisar. Caminante, no hay camino, sino estelas en la mar.“
Campos de Castilla


„Between living and dreaming there is a third thing. Guess it.“

„I dreamt -- marvellous error! -- that I had a beehive here inside my heart. And the golden bees were making white combs and sweet honey from my old failures.“

„Travelers, there is no path, paths are made by walking.“

„Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a spring was breaking
out in my heart.
I said: Along which secret aqueduct,
Oh water, are you coming to me,
water of a new life
that I have never drunk?

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures.

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a fiery sun was giving
light inside my heart.
It was fiery because I felt
warmth as from a hearth,
and sun because it gave light
and brought tears to my eyes.

Last night as I slept,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that it was God I had
here inside my heart.“

„XXIX

Traveler, there is no path.
The path is made by walking.

Traveller, the path is your tracks
And nothing more.
Traveller, there is no path
The path is made by walking.
By walking you make a path
And turning, you look back
At a way you will never tread again
Traveller, there is no road
Only wakes in the sea.“

„Don't try to rush things: for the cup to run over, it must first be filled.“


„I thought my fireplace dead
and stirred the ashes.
I burned my fingers.“
Border of a Dream: Selected Poems

„Death is something we shouldn't fear because, while we are, death isn't, and when death is, we aren't.“

„The wind, one brilliant day, called
to my soul with an odor of jasmine.

"In return for the odor of my jasmine,
I'd like all the odor of your roses."

"I have no roses; all the flowers
in my garden are dead."

"Well then, I'll take the withered petals
and the yellow leaves and the waters of the fountain."

the wind left. And I wept. And I said to myself:
"What have you done with the garden that was entrusted to you?“

„My philosophy is fundamentally sad, but I’m not a sad man, and I don’t believe I sadden anyone else. In other words, the fact that I don’t put my philosophy into practice saves me from its evil spell, or, rather, my faith in the human race is stronger then my intellectual analysis of it; there lies the fountain of youth in which my heart is continually bathing.“


„Caminante, no hay camino. Se hace camino al andar.
(Walker, there is no road. The road is made as you walk.)“

„Caminante son tus huellas
El camino nada más;
caminante no hay camino
se hace camino al andar.“

„I.
Don't trace out your profile--
forget your side view--
all that is outer stuff.

II.
Look for your other half
who walks always next to you
and tends to be who you aren't.“

„Has my heart gone to sleep?
Have the beehives of my dreams
stopped working, the waterwheel
of the mind run dry,
scoops turning empty,
only shadow inside?

No, my heart is not asleep.
It is awake, wide awake.
Not asleep, not dreaming—
its eyes are opened wide
watching distant signals, listening
on the rim of vast silence“
