“Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality.”

Nikos Kazantzakis (1883-1957), the Greek author who gave us Zorba the Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ provides today’s Life Quotes:

“Happiness is a simple everyday miracle, like water, and we are not aware of it.”

“A person needs a little madness, or else they never dare cut the rope and be free.”

“Every perfect traveler always creates the country where he travels.”

“Nothing is nearer to us than heaven. The earth is beneath our feet, and we tread upon it, but heaven is within us.”

“While experiencing happiness, we have difficulty in being conscious of it. Only when the happiness is past and we look back on it do we suddenly realise – sometimes with astonishment – how happy we had been.”
