Bill's Recent Updates

Bill shared a quote
preach it
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“to be Christians finally, it is our duty and obligation to foster only those convictions that are justified by reason and experience, that have passed through the crucible of analysis, in a word, to act sensibly and not senselessly as in dreams or delirium, so as not to bring harm to a man, so as not to torment and ruin a man. Then, then it will be a real Christian deed, not only a mystical one, but a sensible and truly philanthropic deed …”

“What terrible tragedies realism inflicts on people,”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

“I just keep wondering now how people can live and think nothing about these things.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Indeed, people speak sometimes about the ‘animal’ cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to animals, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel. A tiger simply gnaws and tears, that is all he can do. It would never occur to him to nail people by their ears overnight, even if he were able to do it.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
