Nikos Kazantzakis Quotes

"The creator wrestles with a hard, invisible substance, a substance far superior to him. Even the greatest victor emerges vanquished, because our deepest secret, the only one that deserves expression, always remains unexpressed. This secret never submits to arts material contours. We suffocate inside every word. Seeing a blossoming tree, a hero, a woman, the morning star, we cry, Ah! Nothing else is able to accommodate our joy. When, analyzing this Ah! we wish to turn it into thought and art in order to impart it to mankind and rescue it from our own dissolution, how it cheapens into brazen, mascaraed words full of air and fancy!"

EM Bounds Quotes

"Spiritual work is taxing work, and men are loath to do it. Praying, true praying, costs an outlay of serious attention and of time, which flesh and blood do not relish."

Quotes About Beautiful Surroundings

"Beautiful surroundings, the society of learned men, the charm of noble women, the graces of art, could not make up for the loss of those light-hearted mornings of the desert, for that wind that made one a boy again. He had noticed that this peculiar quality in the air of new countries vanished after they were tamed by man and made to bear harvests. Parts of Texas and Kansas that he had first known as open range had since been made into rich farming districts, and the air had quite lost that lightness, that dry, aromatic odour. The moisture of plowed land, the heaviness of labour and growth and grain-bearing, utterly destroyed it; one could breathe that only on the bright edges of the world, on the great grass plains or the sage-brush desert." - Author: Willa Cather

Quotes About Djeca

"Znaš zanimljivo je da djeca uče mnogo više i mnogo brže od odraslih. Znaš li zašto je tako? Zato jer su otvorenog uma. Zato jer žele znati i žele naučiti. Odrasli misle da sve znaju. Odrastu i lako zaborave da umjesto da otvore um i razviju ga, oni odluče u što će vjerovati, a u što ne. Ne možeš donijeti odluku o takvim stvarima - ili vjeruješ ili ne. Oni su cinični, gube vjeru i žele znati samo one stvari koje će im pomagati iz dana u dan. Ne zanimaju ih male stvari. Ali, male stvari čine život." - Author: Cecelia Ahern
