An Inscrutable Girl

To him she seemed so beautiful…

Posted on: December 10, 2009

“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter.

He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell”.

I stumbled upon this excerpt of the novel ‘Love in the times of cholera’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez few days back. Believe me when i say i got goosebumps on reading it, it is a kind of understatement.

EQ..m having fun taking quizzes!

Your EQ is 147
You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.

You are warm and open. Even when life gets you down, you're unafraid of the world and its challenges.
You are comfortable with who you are. And you accept your weaknesses - as well as the weaknesses of others.

While you are quite stable, you don't respond perfectly to every bad situation that comes up.
But you have enough emotional intelligence to know when you need a course correction.
