(Και ποιος είναι ο σωστός δρόμος;) The road upwards (Ο ανήφορος.)" ~ Nikos Kazantzakis, "The Greek Passion"

"How does the light start from a star and poured into the black eternity and tramps immortal? The star dies, but never the light; such is the cry of Freedom. Fight, from the temporal encounter of the rebuttal forces which constitutes your existence, to create whatever immortal a mortal is able to in this world - a Cry. She, chuckin up in the soil the body that begat her, tramps and works eternally." ~ Nikos Kazantzakis, "Ascetic"

Nikos Kazantzakis: "The further away one is from one's country, the more one thinks of it and loves it. When I am in Greece I see the pettiness, the intrigues, the idiocies, the inadequacies of the leaders and the misery of the people. But from afar one cannot distinguish the ugliness so clearly, and one has more freedom to create an image of the country worthy of true love.
