“Το Αιγαίο δεν είναι μονάχα φως και θάλασσα. Μπαίνει μες στην καρδιά των ανθρώπων,γίνεται πρώτα ένας χτύπος,ύστερα άλλος,ώσπου γίνεται όλοι οι χτύποι της καρδιάς. Μπαίνει μες στις φλέβες και γίνεται αίμα. Καίει το αίμα. Μπαίνει μες στη μνήμη,κι από τότε τίποτα πια δεν μπόρει να το σβήσει ως την ώρα του θανάτου. Το Αιγαίο σε φωνάζει πάντα και σε καλεί.”
