“Che strano, Creta evocava i ricordi. Come una macchina del tempo, la sua antichità severa esumava immagini e sentimenti dal passato. Ogni momento sembrava rapportarsi a qualcosa che era successo anni prima.”

“Su un’isola non si dimentica mai il mare, il che significa che non si dimenticano mai i propri limiti. Eppure, entro questi limiti, ogni uomo è re.”
