Quote of the Moment

I've stopped thinking all the time of what happened yesterday. And stopped asking what's going to happen tomorrow. What's happening today, this minute, is what I care about. I say: What are you doing at this moment, Zorba? ...I'm kissing a woman. Well, kiss her well, Zorba. And forget all the rest while you're doing it; there's nothing else on earth, only you and her!
- Nikos Kazantzakis
