I want to add this quote about Borges in the main page:

“Let others pride themselves about how many pages they have written; I'd rather boast about the ones I've read.”

But I notice there is another quote that has been commented, I want to ask, could I add it? What do you think?

There should be one page quote only. I have no clue why the old one has been commented out.

Since, in effect, there isn't a page quote, you are free to add one that you think is good. If someone doesn't like it, please settle it by discussion here or in this forum thread. Additional quotes that don't make it to the page top can be added to Quotes.Jorge Luis Borges.

The Cult of the Phoenix entry on the main article: I disagree vehemently with this description of the story; it is not about that /at all/.

I'm not sure as to the procedure to editing this sort of thing; I don't just want to go in and do it, but this is really very clearly not a precise description of the story.

Maybe it is a joke? That description is more or less accurate in describing the story from the surface, but the story is really basically a joke about how people behave/think once they know about sex.

I suppose that might be true; I guess looking at it from the way that Borges wrote that story, it might make sense, since the whole story is a huge misdirection, but I'm not sure misleading people on the main article is the best way to go. Eh.

Shouldn¨t we use an image of the man for the article?

I think we should, yes; and there are many good ones we could use.

I can't believe it took years to do so :/
