“Chi vuole troppo è un pazzo, perché un uomo non può possedere più di quello che il suo cuore riesce ad amare”
Nicolai Lilin, Siberian Education: Growing Up in a Criminal Underworld

“le lacrime umane non cadono mai per terra, il Signore le raccoglie prima”
Nicolai Lilin, Siberian Education: Growing Up in a Criminal Underworld

“- E adesso come ti senti, vincitore o vittima?
- Nè l'uno nè l'altro credo, vorrei solo che quello che ho passato non capitasse mai più a nessuno.
- Stai tranquillo, capiterà ancora tante volte. Quando finisci in guerra le regole sono semplici: per sopravvivere devi ammazzare i nemici,devi ucciderne più che puoi,e non pensare all'etica,tanto l'uomo vale la bestia...”
Nicolai Lilin, Il respiro del buio
