Thought for the Day

. . . Life's essential length is only a few pages long,
as succinct as a line of verse
 and as brief as the title of a poem.
~ Kiki Dimoula, Greek Poet

Quoted from Interview with Cecile Inglessis Margellos for The Margellos World Republic of Letters, Yale University Press (The interview is full of wonderfully quotable responses to Margellos's questions.)

Kiki Dimoula (b. 1931), Poet, Member of Academy of Athens, Recipient of Greek National Poetry Prize, Grand National Prize, Ouranis Prize of Academy of Athens, Aristeion of Letters of Academy of Athens, and European Prize for Literature
