from “A New Refutation of Time” by Jorge Luis Borges

“I am told that the present, the specious present of the psychologists, lasts from a few seconds to a minute fraction of a second that can be the duration of the history of the universe. In other words, there is no such history, just as a man has no life; not even one of his nights exists; each moment we live exists, but not their imaginary combination.”

from “The Theologians” by Jorge Luis Borges

“He argued with the men on whose judgment his fate depended and committed the extreme ineptitude of doing so with wit and irony.”
