About Me

Hi :) I'm Antonio, a really curious and happy person from Madrid, Spain.

I love quotes, I know a lot of them and I think you can know a little bit a person just trought his favourites quotes.

"I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanets from me". Bhagavad Gita

"In giving we recieve".

"If you know what I know about the power of giving, you will not let a single meal without sharing it".

"When you have more than you need build a longer table not a higher fence".

"Llevo conmigo las heridas de todas las batallas que he evitado".
Fernando Pessoa.

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it".
Rumi

"Be honestly and unapologetically you. Because you being uniquely you will allow the people you interact with to feel comfortable being uniquely them – perhaps for the first time in their lives. There is no more authentic way to connect and no greater gift to give".

"In the middle of the journey of my life, I found myself in a dark wood, for I had lost the right path. Eventually I would find the right path, but in the most unlikely place".

"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious".

"You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough".

"Everything you listen is an opinion, not a fact, everything you see is a perspective, not the truth".
Marcus Aurelius

"I am not young enough to know everything".
Oscar Wilde

Don't spend your hole life quoting others, be creative, be your on quotationg, be your own positive influence.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One of my best friends (who I met trought CS and probably changed my life) told me once that CS is like having a best friend in every single country of the world.

So, I love good friends, this is why I'm on Couchsurfing.

Interests

Love, Self Development, Asthanga yoga, dancing, Vipassana Meditation, Writing, Traveling, Cooking, Nature, Animals, Music.

I love to explore different daily rutines/trainings to keep my body in good shape, and when I say "good shape" I mean healthy and happy.

I really like to cook but I like more to eat. One of my passions is to walk without direction, I REALLY love music and discover songs that give me the precious gift of let me feel more alive, I like photography, I love writing, I really love to read, I love animals (all of them) and everytime I have the chance I´ll pet every animal I find.

I love to make laught to people (or try) and to my self.

I love to have dreams, but overall what I love is to make them reality, because I love Seth Godin´s quote "make something happen".

Music, Movies, and Books

Those are my favourite Quotes from filmes:

"What's wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can't we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy gentlemen. If we're going to fight a disease, let's fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference."
Patch Adams

"I have no idea what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free."
The ShawnShank Redemption

"Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind."
The princes bride.

"It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something."
Crash.

Jenny: Were you scared in Vietnam?
Forrest: Yes. Well, I-I don't know. Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out... and then it was nice. It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou. There was always a million sparkles on the water... like that mountain lake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked like there were two skies one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn't tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It's so beautiful.
Jenny: I wish I could've been there with you.
Forrest: You were.
