"How does the light start from a star and poured into the black eternity and tramps immortal? The star dies, but never the light; such is the cry of Freedom. Fight, from the temporal encounter of the rebuttal forces which constitutes your existence, to create whatever immortal a mortal is able to in this world - a Cry. She, chuckin up in the soil the body that begat her, tramps and works eternally." ~ Nikos Kazantzakis, "Ascetic"
