“The Greek word for “return” is nostos. Algos means “suffering”. So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return.” Milan Kundera

  1. I love all the words that express the concept of longing or unrequited desire. My favourite is the German “Sehnsucht”. Thanks for sharing this beautiful quote of Kundera. In only read his “The Unbearable lightness of being”. Did you read it too? 🙂
