Quote from Nikos Kazantzakis on the hidden meaning of things


Everything in the world has a hidden meaning.
Men, animals, trees, stars, they are all hieroglyphics.

When you see them you do not understand them.
You think they are really men, animals, trees, stars.

It is only years later that you understand.

—Nikos Kazantzakis
