They say that granite is one of the hardest types of stone there is. Here in Spain we say that there are people with hearts of stone and heads of granite. We all know someone like that. They’re dark and full of gloom, impervious to joy or hurt. This inability to feel means they go through life like automatons. I can’t help thinking that being so hard-hearted is not good for any human being. Sometimes you have to let yourself go and just feel, because showing your feelings is not a sign of weakness but of strength. Granite is great for making decorative globes or building an aqueduct, but not so good if you are talking about men’s souls.
