"Όποιος αγαπάει ένα πουλί, ένα άστρο, ένα παιδί, αυτός πάντα του βλέπει όμορφα όνειρα κι ο κόσμος γίνεται όμορφος ως πέρα απ’ τον ύπνο του, ως πίσω απ’ τα κλεισμένα μάτια του, ως μέσα στο πιο άγνωστο χαμόγελό του."


Κανενας δεν μπορει να γραψει κατι καλυτερο απο αυτο το ποίημα. Tα λεει ολα μεσα σε ενα μικρο στίχο. θα ηταν πολυ λιγο να γράψω εγω για αυτα τα καταπληκτικα θαύματα. Μονο ενας Ρίτσος μπορει.

"ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ- Come and take them. Greek: (μολὼν λαβέ molṑn labé), meaning "come and take them" , is a classical expression of defiance. According to Herodotus, when the Persian armies demanded that the Greeks surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae, King Leonidas I responded with this phrase. It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase." [ Molon labe - "Plagiarism." Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 4 April 2016 ]

The Battle of Thermopylae took place 480 BC. King Leonidas lead 300 Spartans into battle against the Persians defending a narrow pass into the mountains. When the battle was over, the 300 Spartans all lay dead as did the 700 Thespians who had stood by them. The Persian dead were said to number around 20,000.

The movies "The 300 Spartans" (1962), and more recent "300" (2006), are inspired by the Battle of Thermopylae.
