Quote of the Day – C.P. Cavafy

A day comes to some people when
they must pronounce the great Yes or the great No.
It is instantly clear who has the Yes within,
ready; and by uttering it, he crosses over to

his honor and conviction. The one who
refuses has no remorse. If asked again,
he’d say no again. And yet that No –
the right No — weighs him down to his life’s end.

Constantine P. Cavafy (1901, translated from the Greek by Willis and Aliki Barnstone)
