Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

“Bless you prison, bless you for being in my life. For there, lying upon the rotting prison straw, I came to realize that the object of life is not prosperity as we are made to believe, but the maturity of the human soul.”


Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
