Pablo Neruda is considered to be one of the most celebrated poets of all time. Neruda was a Chilean poet, diplomat, and politician. His real name was Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto. He started writing poetry when he was 10. But because his father never approved his interest in writing and literature, he chose to publish his poems under a pen name.
By the age of 20, the poet became an international writer. For his natural talent and poetic mastery, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. He wrote innumerable aspects of love and the readers still look for meaning in his words when in despair or in love. On his birth anniversary, we bring you ten of his most heart-wrenching quotes.
