Superior Quotes #71: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

작년

SOURCE

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

If they only knew to what degree I myself understand all the loathsomeness of my present condition, they wouldn't have the heart to teach me.

But what can a decent man speak of with most pleasure?

The secret of man's being is not only to live but to have something to live for.
