"Γλύκα μεγάλη είχε το νησί ετούτο, αγαθά τα πρόσωπα των ανθρώπων, σωροί τα πεπόνια, τα ροδάκινα, τα σύκα κι η θάλασσα ήρεμη. Κοίταζα τους ανθρώπους – ποτέ οι άνθρωποι αυτοί δεν τρόμαξαν από σεισμό ή από Τούρκο, και τα μάτια τους δεν καίγουνταν. Εδώ η λευτεριά είχε σβήσει τη λαχτάρα για τη λευτεριά, κι η ζωή απλώνουνταν ευτυχισμένο κοιμάμενο νερό. Κι αν κάποτε ταράζουνταν, ποτέ δε σήκωνε τρικυμία. Ασφάλεια ήταν το πρώτο δώρο του νησιού που ένιωσα περιδιαβάζοντας στη Νάξο"

(Ν. Καζαντζάκη – «Αναφορά στον Γκρέκο»).
