Nostalgia / © I.A. Daglis

It isn't necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.

Frank Zappa (1940-1993, American composer of Greek, Arab, Italian and French descent)


  1. Όσο πιο έντονη είναι η νοσταλγία τόσο πιο πολύ αδειάζει από αναμνήσεις...(Μίλαν Κούντερα, Η άγνοια)

  2. Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Robert Frost [Fire and Ice, 1920]
