VIDEO REPORT – Greece land of beauty

“This is true happiness: to have no ambition and to work like a horse as if you had every ambition. To live far from men, not to need them and yet to love them. To have the stars above, the land to your left and the sea to your right and to realize of a sudden that in your heart, life has accomplished its final miracle: it has become a fairy tale.”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek
For those who think that Greece today is of no importance, allow me to say that they could not have been more wrong. Modern, just like ancient Greece, has unique importance for everyone who is trying to find himself” 
— Henry Miller, American writer (1891-1980).

— Albert Einstein, German-born Jewish physicist (1879-1955)

“ Hence we will not say that Greeks fight like heroes, but that heroes fight like Greeks” 

— Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1940-1945, 1951-1955).

“The world is the expanding Greece and Greece is the shrinking world”
— Victor Hugo, French romantic writer (1802-1885).

“If the sharp-sightedness of the Greeks had kept pace with their intelligence, then maybe even the Industrial Revolution had begun one thousand years before Columbus. And so, in our era, we would not just try to visit the Moon, but we would already had arrived on other close planets” 
— Sir Arthur C. Clarke, British science fiction author and inventor (1917-2008).
