Zorba: Why do the young die?

Zorba:  Why does anybody die?
Basil: I don’t know.
Zorba: What’s the use of all your damn books? If they don’t tell you that, what the hell do they tell you?
Basil: They tell me about the agony of men who can’t answer questions like yours.
Zorba: I spit on their agony.

(Michael Cacoyannis, —screenplay for Zorba the Greek)
