'Dearer to us than a host of truths is an exalting illusion.' - Pushkin

'I look upon tags and labels as prejudices. My holy of holies is the human body, health, intelligence, talent, inspiration, love, and the most absolute freedom imaginable, freedom from violence and lies, no matter what form the latter two take.' -Chekov (in a letter to his critics)
