[Lines by Pedro Calderón de la Barca 1600-1681]
Qué es la vida? Una ilusión,
una sombra, una ficción,
y el mayor bien es pequeño
que toda la vida es sueño
y los sueños sueños son.

No temáis, no, de que os falte
compañía en las desdichas,
pues en duda semejante
de vivir o de morir,
no sé cuáles son más grandes.

"What is life? An illusion,
a shadow, a fiction,
and the greatest good is worth nothing at all,
for the whole of life is just a dream
and dreams are only dreams.

Don't fear to be alone
in your misfortune,
because I don't know
if there can be greater worries
than that of hovering
between life and death."
