“You see, my love. As you've always said, after the rain-"
Sun."
After the darkness-"
Light."

Health."
Exactly," said the Tsar. "We mustn't give up faith.”
Robert Alexander, The Kitchen Boy: A Novel of the Last Tsar

“On the other hand, he was compassionate because he knew pain, real pain, and real suffering too. Yet even in those bouts when it looked for sure as if he would die, he was never given morphine, not even as his screams of pain rattled the palace windows. That poor child had traveled to the bottom of life and back again, and naturally that had had a profound effect on him.”
Robert Alexander, The Kitchen Boy: A Novel of the Last Tsar
