„Every body, every soul is a Holy Sepulcher. Every seed of grain is a Holy Sepulchre; let us free it!“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis Greek writer 1883 - 1957
Context: Life is a crusade in the service of God. Whether we wished to or not, we set out as crusaders to free — not the Holy Sepulchre — but that God buried in matter and in our souls. Every body, every soul is a Holy Sepulcher. Every seed of grain is a Holy Sepulchre; let us free it! The brain is a Holy Sepulchre, God sprawls within it and battles with death; let us run to his assistance!

„As the soul is the life of the body, so God is the life of the soul.“

—  Aurelius Augustinus early Christian theologian and philosopher 354 - 430
Context: As the soul is the life of the body, so God is the life of the soul. As therefore the body perishes when the soul leaves it, so the soul dies when God departs from it. p. 277
