Quote of the Day (Nikos Kazantzakis, on ‘What a Strange Machine Man Is’)

“What a strange machine man is! You fill him with bread, wine, fish, and radishes, and out comes sighs, laughter, and dreams.” —Nikos Kazantzakis (1883-1957), Zorba the Greek (1946)

(The image accompanying this post is not, I need hardly say, of the author, but of Anthony Quinn, the Oscar-nominated star of the 1964 film adaptation of Zorba the Greek.)
