Kostes Palamas: “We are neither Christians nor pagans”

25 Feb

And it’s still not a totally resolved issue. And let it not be. And we shouldn’t aim for resolution. It’s a dialectic intensity, a frisson which may account for most of the culture we’ve produced as a modern people: a new life that’s constantly and just barely out of reach at all times, and it’s that often exhausting struggle itself that’s the subject and the beauty of our civilization. Yes, a civilization.

See: Kostis Palamas as well.
