“مرة في هذه الحياة يقترب القدر من الإنسان ويقول له: اختر. إذن فليس عليك الآن إلا أن تقول كلمة واحدة”
Vladimir Korolenko, الموسيقي الأعمى

“ان كل انسان احس بافراح الحياة الواعية وباتراحها، يعاني في سن معينة ازمة شديدة بعض الشدة. انه اذ يقف على عتبة الحياة الفاعلة الناشطة، يحاول ان يعين مكانه في الطبيعة، وان يحدد قيمته، وان يعرف علاقته بالكون الذي يحيط به. تلكم مرحلة حرجة، وسعيد ذلك الذي يمتلك من القوة ما يمكنه من اجتيازها دون ان يتحطم.”
Vladimir Korolenko, الموسيقي الأعمى

“زال ما كان لابد ان يزول. لقد عاشوا على طريقتهم، وعليكم انتم ان تجدوا طريقتكم.”
