Don’t Think Too Much

by solitary walker

“A man needs a little madness or else . . . he never dares cut the rope and be free.”

“You think too much. That is your trouble. Clever people and grocers, they weigh everything.”

“How simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea.”

“I felt deep within me that the highest point a man can attain is not Knowledge, or Virtue, or Goodness, or Victory, but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe!”

Nikos Kazantzakis Zorba The Greek
