This blog follows no particular theme. My constant craving soul just wont allow it! This is my musings on wisdom, travels, life in Spain, kettlebells, running, rock music and so much more.

Δεν ελπίζω τίποτα. Δε φοβάμαι τίποτα. Είμαι λέφτερος.



This post was inspired from a friend on facebook posting a Nikos quote, so I had to search for more!
My dear lovely readers I grant ye the Greek wisdom of Nikos Kazantzakis (1883 - 1957), author of the fabulous Zorba the Greek and mighty philosopher;

"In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can."

"A person needs a little madness, or else they never dare cut the rope and be free."

"I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free."

"Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality."
