“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
― Pablo Picasso
Siempre le cabreó muchísimo al pobre eso. Leí un artículo en francés en el colegio donde decía que no entendía por qué tenía que pintar en un estilo que no era el que le gustaba pero era el más admirado (y yo contesto: porque es el que te da dinero xD). Es el Cervantes de los pintores, que quería ser dramaturgo y se “tuvo que conformar” con ser “novelista” xD
Que, para no “gustarles tanto”, se pasaron tres pueblos en genialidad.
Y los demás sin hacer decentemente ni lo que nos gusta. Inyustisia.

if you were a twin in ancient rome they would name the firstborn and then name the secondborn after the firstborn
if your older twin’s name was geminus, your name would be anti-geminus
that is the equivalent of naming your children steve and not steve
so what happened when triplets were born
Steve, Not Steve, Definitely Not Steve.

Classification and distribution of Romance languages.
“Romance languages, group of related languages all derived from Vulgar Latin within historical times and forming a subgroup of the Italic branch of the Indo-European language family. The major languages of the family include French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian, all national languages. Catalan also has taken on a political and cultural significance; among the Romance languages that now have less political or literary significance or both are the Occitan and Rhaetian dialects, Sardinian, and Dalmatian (extinct), among others. Of all the so-called families of languages, the Romance group is perhaps the simplest to identify and the easiest to account for historically. Not only do Romance languages share a good proportion of basic vocabulary—still recognizably the same in spite of some phonological changes—and a number of similar grammatical forms, but they can be traced back, with but few breaks in continuity, to the language of the Roman Empire.” - Encyclopaedia Britannica
