I have not told the half of what I saw | Marco Polo (1254 -1324)

Marco Polos' departure from Venice, miniature from Book of the Wonders of the World, France, 15th Century

“I did not tell half of what I saw, for I knew I would not be believed”

“My heart beats as much as I can breathe.”

"Without stones there is no arch."

“One of these nuts is a meal for a man, both meat and drink.”

“The true sweetness of wine is one flavor”

“If you put together all the Christians in the world, with their Emperors and their Kings, the whole of these 
Christians, - aye, and throw in the Saracens to boot, - would not have such power, or be able to do so much 
as this Kublai, who is Lord of all the Tartars in the world.”

“To the north of Armenia lies Zorzania Georgia, near the confines of which there is a fountain of oil which discharges 
so great a quantity as to furnish loading for many camels. The use made of it is not for the purpose of food, but as an 
unguent for the cure of cutaneous distempers in men and cattle, as well as other complaints, and it is also good for burning. 
In the surrounding country no other oil is used in their lamps, and people come from distant parts to procure it.”

"Fully sixty thousand men were slain in this battle, but king Toctai, as well as the two sons of Tolobuga, escaped."

''Το ελληνικό νησιώτικο χωριό που ψήνεται στον ήλιο, με τα παιδιά και τους μεγάλους του, με τις γιορτές και τα παιχνίδια, τον ξωβεργάρη και τα γαϊδουράκια 
στο μπάνιο, με το γλυκό σκυλί και το χαριτωμένο γατάκι και τέλος τα θαυμάσια εκείνα τρυφερά παιδιά, όλα είναι μια μαγεία. Μια ελληνική μαγεία.''
