Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

Leo Tolstoy
“We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Mark Twain
“In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.”
Mark Twain

Leo Tolstoy
“The strongest of all warriors are these two — Time and Patience.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Derren Brown
“Each of us is leading a difficult life, and when we meet people we are seeing only a tiny part of the thinnest veneer of their complex, troubled existences. To practise anything other than kindness towards them, to treat them in any way save generously, is to quietly deny their humanity.”
Derren Brown, Confessions of a Conjuror
