—  Nikos Kazantzakis, buch The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Kontext: You are not free. Myriad invisible hands hold your hands and direct them. When you rise in anger, a great-grandfather froths at your mouth; when you make love, an ancestral caveman growls with lust; when you sleep, tombs open in your memory till your skull brims with ghosts.

Kontext: There is shadow under this red rock

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Outstanding American women, on the other hand, see power as a resource, something you can use to get people together, to gain commitment.“
