Como uno es de niño, así permanecerá toda l. a. vida. Y, sin embargo, el deseo de cambiar es un impulso que nos acompaña. A veces nos gustaría empezar desde cero. Pero no se puede: ?cambiar las cartas es imposible, lo único que nos queda es cambiar l. a. mesa de juego?, sentencia un personaje» (Antonio Gnoli, los angeles Repubblica).
