1012. Nikos Kazantzakis - The Mind Of Man

From: The Saviors of God. translated by Kimon Friar

The mind of man can perceive appearances only
 and never the essence of things

And not all appearances but only the appearance of matter.

And not even these appearances of matter
 but only relationships between them.

And these relationships are not real and independent
 of man for even these are his creations.

And they are not the only ones humanly possible but simply

 the most convenient for his practical and perceptive needs.
