I have reverted the three recent changes to this page. First they changed a well formated page into a mess. If you are going to add quotes at least leave the page looking decent. Second most of the added quotes were long paragraphs. One of them was literally thirty sentences. That's not a quote, and it borders on copyright violation. Third unlike the existing quotes there are no references on most of the quotes. Sure they came from Report From Greco (a book from which I would like to see quotes posted), but where at? One shouldn't have to pour through a 500 page book to find a quote.

Find the chapters they are from, follow a reasonable format (listing books chronologically, etc.) and choose shorter quotes.

I am, however, going to leave the attributed quotes, with the exception of his epitaph which already appears at the top of the page. Also I moved one of the quotes to sourced (Last Temptation of Christ).

== "Δεν ελπίζω τίποτα. Δε φοβούμαι τίποτα. Είμαι λέφτερος" Does this appear anywhere in the writings of N.K ? Please let me know ! BTW : The translation : "I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free." does not come near to the meaning at all. dreysacz from german WP
