“Man's dearest possession is life. It is given to him but once, and he must live it so as to feel no torturing regrets for wasted years, never know the burning shame of a mean and petty past; so live that, dying, he might say: all my life, all my strength were given to the finest cause in all the world──the fight for the Liberation of Mankind”
Nikolai Ostrovsky

“إن الإنسان لا يخاف الموت ، إذا كانت له قضية يفنى من
أجلها ،
فـ إنها تخلق في نفسه القوة ، وسـ يموت مطمئن الضمير ، حتما ،
إذا كان يحس بـ أن الحقيقة إلى جانبه ... ومن هنا تأتي البطولة !”
Nikolai Ostrovsky

“الحياة أعز شيئ للإنسان ، إنها توهب له مرة واحدة ، فيجب ان يعيشها عيشة لا يشعر معها بندم معذب على السنين التي عاشها ، ولا يلسعه العار على ماض رذل تافه ، وليستطيع أن يقول وهو يحتضر : كانت حياتي كل قواي موهوبة لأروع شيئ في العالم : النظال في سبيل تحرير الانسانية”
Nikolai Ostrovsky, How the Steel Was Tempered
