„What is our duty? To struggle so that a small flower may blossom from the dunghill of our flesh and mind.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, livro The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Contexto: Humanity is such a lump of mud, each one of us is such a lump of mud. What is our duty? To struggle so that a small flower may blossom from the dunghill of our flesh and mind.
Out of things and flesh, out of hunger, out of fear, out of virtue and sin, struggle continually to create God.

„Only when the happiness is past and we look back on it we do suddenly realize — sometimes with astonishment — how happy we had been.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, livro Zorba the Greek

Fonte: Zorba the Greek (1946), Ch. 6
Contexto: While experiencing happiness, we have difficulty in being conscious of it. Only when the happiness is past and we look back on it we do suddenly realize — sometimes with astonishment — how happy we had been.

„If you are a man of learning, fight in the skull, kill ideas and create new ones.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, livro The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Contexto: If you are a man of learning, fight in the skull, kill ideas and create new ones. God hides in every idea as in every cell of flesh. Smash the idea, set him free! Give him another, a more spacious idea in which to dwell.

„I am an improvised bridge, and when Someone passes over me, I crumble away behind Him.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, livro The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Contexto: I am not alone in my fear, nor alone in my hope, nor alone in my shouting. A tremendous host, an onrush of the Universe fears, hopes, and shouts with me.
I am an improvised bridge, and when Someone passes over me, I crumble away behind Him.

„All the concentrated agony of the Universe bursts out in every living thing.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, livro The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Contexto: The wife of my God is matter; they wrestle with each other, they laugh and weep, they cry out in the nuptial bed of flesh.
They spawn and are dismembered. They fill sea, land, and air with species of plants, animals, men, and spirits. This primordial pair embraces, is dismembered, and multiplies in every living creature.
All the concentrated agony of the Universe bursts out in every living thing. God is imperiled in the sweet ecstasy and bitterness of flesh.
But he shakes himself free, he leaps out of brains and loins, then clings to new brains and new loins until the struggle for liberation again breaks out from the beginning.

„With clarity and quiet, I look upon the world and say: All that I see, hear, taste, smell, and touch are the creations of my mind.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, livro The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Contexto: With clarity and quiet, I look upon the world and say: All that I see, hear, taste, smell, and touch are the creations of my mind.
The sun comes up and the sun goes down in my skull. Out of one of my temples the sun rises, and into the other the sun sets.
The stars shine in my brain; ideas, men, animals browse in my temporal head; songs and weeping fill the twisted shells of my ears and storm the air for a moment.
