„The more devils we have within us, the more chance we have to form angels.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, kniha The Last Temptation of Christ

Zdroj: The Last Temptation of Christ (1951), Ch. 10

„Die every day. Be born every day. Deny everything you have every day. The superior virtue is not to be free but to fight for freedom.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, kniha The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Kontext: God cries to my heart: "Save me!"
God cries to men, to animals, to plants, to matter: "Save me!"
Listen to your heart and follow him. Shatter your body and awake: We are all one.
Love man because you are he.
Love animals and plants because you were they, and now they follow you like faithful co-workers and slaves.
Love your body; only with it may you fight on this earth and turn matter into spirit.
Love matter. God clings to it tooth and nail, and fights. Fight with him.
Die every day. Be born every day. Deny everything you have every day. The superior virtue is not to be free but to fight for freedom.
Do not condescend to ask: "Shall we conquer? Shall we be conquered?" Fight on!

„Enlighten the dark blood of your ancestors, shape their cries into speech, purify their will, widen their narrow, unmerciful brows.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, kniha The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Kontext: Enlighten the dark blood of your ancestors, shape their cries into speech, purify their will, widen their narrow, unmerciful brows. This is your second duty.
For you are not only a slave. As soon as you were born, a new possibility was born with you, a free heartbeat stormed through the great sunless heart of your race.

„Where are we going? Do not ask! Ascend, descend. There is no beginning and no end.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, kniha The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Kontext: Where are we going? Do not ask! Ascend, descend. There is no beginning and no end. Only this present moment exists, full of bitterness, full of sweetness, and I rejoice in it all.

„Free yourself from race also; fight to live through the whole struggle of man.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, kniha The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Kontext: It is not you talking. Nor is it your race only which shouts within you, for all the innumerable races of mankind shout and rush within you: white, yellow, black.
Free yourself from race also; fight to live through the whole struggle of man.
