Digueu-me que sóc ingenu, però encara ara sento un punt de goig beatífic quan arriba aquell moment, a l’aula, en el qual observo que els alumnes estan embadalits davant d’un vers inexhaurible de Rosselló-Pòrcel («perú de lliris i de llunes mina») o d’un poema de Maragall en el qual s’adonen que allò que fa olor de «ginesta» no és una planta sinó el so d’una paraula. Juan Manuel Sabugo - El p�jaro bebedor: el juguete que fascin� a Einstein y a Homer Simpson. Según contó la revista Time en 1964, Einstein ya era famoso y se encontraba en una recepción junto a físicos de todo el mundo cuando alguien se le acercó y le mostró un "pájaro bebedor".

Lo estuvo observando durante un rato. El pájaro se inclinaba periódicamente para beber agua del vaso sin que nadie ni nada lo impulsara.

" In a conversation I had with Ken Bain, my longtime mentor and favorite education writer, he cited that quote — the first sentence of Gabriel García Márquez’s novel One Hundred Years of Solitude — as one of the great openings in literary history. It’s hard to disagree: The sentence plunges us immediately into a drama, acquaints us with a character on the brink of death, and yet intrigues us with the reference to his long-forgotten (and curiosity-inducing) memory.
