“Võib-olla ei peaks kunagi hommikul seda lugema, mis südaöösel kirjutatud: hommik ja südaöö ei mõista teineteist või nad mõistavad võõriti.”
Anton Hansen Tammsaare, Ma armastasin sakslast

“Tee tööd ja näe vaeva, siis tuleb ka armastus,” ütles isa.

A.H. Tammsaare, Tõde ja õigus V

Anton Hansen Tammsaare, Ma armastasin sakslast
