    Ideal teachers are those who use themsleves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own. ~ Nikos Kazantzakis

    Kazantzakis-- brilliant!

    Pap, by any chance do you know the quote from Mr. Kazantzakis about how we are alone in which he used the metaphor of a bloat floating in the fog or the ocean or something to that affect?  I remember it from way back in the early 70's but can't recall which book it is from.  My sister told me that quote changed her life. 
    “The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man [or woman] who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
    Variously credited to Mark Twain or Edward Abbey.

    ^ :smile:  My father is a big fan of his work! The man knows most of Kazantzakis' renowned and unknown quotes by heart!.. :open_mouth: The one you referred to here must be from his book entitled Ascesis: The Saviors of God.

    Don't feed them,
    That's what they want.
    Leave them to gather alone,
    And they'll only have themselves to feed upon.

    Henry David Thoreau
  • “Though nothing can bring back the hour
    Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
    We will grieve not, rather find
    Strength in what remains behind;
    In the primal sympathy
    Which having been must ever be...” 
    ― William Wordsworth

    Ha!  Well done.

    Caught in the devil's bargain

    Music is... power: to lift us up, drive our creativity, bolster education, and create jobs. Music is... inspiration: it motivates people all over the world. Music is... connection: we are all born with an instrument – our voices, our hands, our feet. We can all feel music. Music is... something we all share: it is in all of us and about all of us. ~ Denise Burnside (SMASH)

  • But I love my life man it's something to see
    It's the kids and the dogs and you and me
    It's the way it's alright when everything goes wrong
    It's the sound of a slow simple song


    Chris Stapleton
