Fyodor Dostoyevsky

“I came with horror to the conclusion that, if anything could dissipate my love to humanity, it would be ingratitude. In short, I am a hired servant, I expect my payment at once—that is, praise, and the repayment of love with love. Otherwise I am incapable of loving any one.”


Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
