"We the Cretans love our island passionately and follow the spirit, which arose from the epoch of the lovers in the Minoan times and developed over the centuries under the eternal influence of other peoples, like Dorians, Egyptians, Byzantinians, Arabs, Venetians, Turks... This spirit goes beyond the boundaries of the term "culture". You can find it in the sound of our folk song "Rizitiko", in the motive of an antique pottery, in the movements of a shepherd tending his herd in the mountains, in the smell of the herb "Diktamos", in the eyes of a priest, who holds a service alone in his chapel with a gun in his belt..."
 (Translation. after Nikos Karellis in "Kreta" in 1994)
