to see everything for the first time and for the last time

Tuesday, March 27, 2012


All my life one of my greatest desires has been to travel - to see and touch unknown countries, to swim in unknown seas, to circle the globe, observing new lands, seas, people, and ideas with insatiable appetite, to see everything for the first time and for the last time, casting a slow, prolonged glance, then to close my eyes and feel the riches deposit themselves inside me calmly or stormily according to their pleasure, until time passes them at last through its fine sieve, straining the quintessence out of all the joys and sorrows. 

~ Nikos Kazantzakis, Report to Greco, 1965
