the central heart that deals not in words, traffics not with dreams

I inscribe this book to S.D. — English, innumerable, and an Angel.
Also: I offer her that kernel of myself that I have saved, somehow — the central heart that deals not in words, traffics not with dreams, and is untouched by time, by joy, by adversities.

Jorge Luis Borges, the Dedication of A Universal History of Iniquity
