Mexicans are famous for their passion, ardent love, tragic and happy romances, and many intense emotions that in many cases result in beautiful art, music, songs, novels, or poems.

They embrace their painful emotions and turn them into very profound master peaces of literature. Thats a great gift to have!

If there is a perfect coping mechanism for stress and broken heart it must be poetry or some other form of art.

Octavio Paz (19141998)The Winner of 1990 Nobel Prize for Literature is one of the greatest poets of all times. His poems are so vivid, inspiring, passionate, and powerful that many call life changing.
