Hispanic Heritage Month

Quote of the Day

Hola a todos, 

We will continue to celebrate Hispanic heritage month.

Today’s quote comes from Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a Colombian writer and journalist who ultimately won the Nobel Literature Prize in 1982. He once said

“No es cierto que la gente deje de perseguir los sueños porque envejecen, envejecen porque dejan de perseguir los sueños.

It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”
