RKS Literature: Passage of the Day: A Reluctant Cretan Bride to Be! (Nikos Kazantzakis)

“A piece of bread-damn it, that seems to you a trifle, does it, my princess? Very clever it sounds! And what, by God, should a bridegroom find to desire in you? Youth? Beauty? Riches? You’re thirty-five, and shrunk to a dried currant, to an old maid with a moustache! And that greyhound brother of yours has plundered you. A rag is all you are now. Who’s going to look at you now, who’s going to want you poor thing. God has struck Tityros with blindness, to make him say yes.”

Nikos Kazantzakis “Freedom and Death” 1956
