When all those years
Nothing but idle talk is left
And we are nowhere in the world?"

Boris Pasternak
“The poet gives his whole life such a voluntarily steep incline that it is impossible for it to exist in the vertical line of biography where we expect to meet it. It is not to be found under his own name and must be sought under those of others, in the biographical columns of his followers. The more self-contained the individuality from which the life derives, the more collective, without any figurative speaking, is its story.”
Boris Pasternak, Safe Conduct: An Autobiography and Other Writings
