RE: Great quotes
A collection of my favorite quotes of Nikos Kazantzakis, a religious (although accused of being an atheist) yet extremely talented writer.


We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life.


How simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. . . . All that is required to feel that here and now is happiness is a simple, frugal heart.


Beauty is merciless. You do not look at it, it looks at you and does not forgive.


You have your brush, you have your colors, you paint the paradise, then in you go.


I feel as if we are banging our heads against iron bars. Many heads are going to be smashed, but one day the iron bars will be smashed, too.


Death is the salt that gives life its tasty sting.


Love and compassion are the daughters of man, not God.

"Behind every great pirate, there is a great butt."
-Guybrush Threepwood-

RE: Great quotes
I don't think homosexuality is a choice. Society forces you to think it's a choice, but in fact, it's in one's nature. The choice is whether one expresses one's nature truthfully or spends the rest of one's life lying about it. --- Marlo Thomas


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Great quotes
A human being survives by his ability to forget. Memory is always ready to blot out the bad and retain only the good.

Varlam Shalamov.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mikhail Bakunin.
