Churchill and Roosevelt have met again at Casablanca. And none of their men sees how Stalin is playing with them, how they are the victims of the most tragic farce in the history of the world: the Red assassins--who, in comparison with other political assassins, have the merit of operating on a large scale, in the millions--the Red assassins are awaited as the liberators of Europe . . . p. 67

"[...] nu ma sperie ceva care se va intimpla in viitor (moartea) sau se petrece in prezent (trecerea) atit cit ma ingrozeste ceea ce nu se va mai repeta. Atunci realizez conditia umana; tragedia, religia, sinuciderea, dementa - tot atunci le inteleg."
this is the best Eliade journal as it is raw, brutal, emotional and with all the warts

“My religion: Very seldom do I feel a need for the presence of God. I don't pray and I don't know how to pray. When I enter a church, I try to pray, but I can't tell if I succeed or not. But often I have religious “attacks”: the desire for isolation, for contemplation far from other people. Despair. The desire (and the hope) for asceticism.” 3 likes
