Quote #10

"There is more than one way to get what you want in this country. Maybe I must be more determined than others to succeed, but I know that it will happen. Aguántate tantito y la fruta caerá en tu mano." (13.50)

Hey, isn't that what Papa used to say? "Wait a little while and the fruit will fall into your hand." In other words, be patient. Well, it turns out this philosophy also applies to Miguel's current situation. Sure, he'll have to work hard, and he'll encounter some prejudice, but eventually, if he is patient, he will succeed.
