Famous quotes containing the words octavio paz and/or paz:

    Surrealism is not a school of poetry but a movement of liberation.... A way of rediscovering the language of innocence, a renewal of the primordial pact, poetry is the basic text, the foundation of the human order. Surrealism is revolutionary because it is a return to the beginning of all beginnings.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)

    Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
