The Saviors of God: Spiritual Exercises
by Nikos KazantzakisSimon and Schuster, New York, New York © 1960 143 pp.
"We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life. As soon as we are born the return begins, at once the setting forth and the coming back; we die in every moment. Because of this many have cried: The goal of life is death! But as soon as we are born we begin the struggle to create, to compose, to turn matter into life; we are born in every moment. Because of this many have cried out: The goal of ephemeral life is immortality!" (pp. 43-44)
