„I know that each one of us travels to love alone,
alone to faith and to death.
I know it. I’ve tried it. It doesn’t help.
Let me come with you.“

Alone my sweet love has left me.
Alone am I, without friend or mate,
Alone am I, mournful and angry.“

„I know well that only words, that words alone,
like the high mountains, have no fear of age or death.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis Greek writer 1883 - 1957
Context: Fools, art is a heavy task, more heavy than gold crowns; it's far more difficult to match firm words than armies, they're disciplined troops, unconquered, to be placed in rhythm, the mind's most mighty foe, and not disperse in air. I'd give, believe me, a whole land for one good song, for I know well that only words, that words alone, like the high mountains, have no fear of age or death. Pharaoh, Book X, line 688
