Alegoría del Tiempo y la Belleza

(El tiempo vencido por el amor, la belleza y la esperanza, de Simon Vouet, 1627)

Siempre buscando pequeñas victorias ante el imparable Titán Cronos. Si tiene que vencer, que no sea porque nos hemos resignado.

Benny: "Time is a funny thing. Time is a very peculiar item. You see when you're young, you're a kid, you got time, you got nothing but time. Throw away a couple of years, a couple of years there... it doesn't matter. You know. The older you get you say, "Jesus, how much I got? I got thirty-five summers left." Think about it. Thirty-five summers."
(de Rumble Fish, Francis Ford Coppola, 1983. Basado en una novela de Susan E. Hinton)
