Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The darker the night, the brighter the stars,
The deeper the grief, the closer is God!”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The world says: "You have needs -- satisfy them. You have as much right as the rich and the mighty. Don't hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more." This is the worldly doctrine of today. And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, for the poor, envy and murder.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

“Adults are always asking little kids what they want to be when they grow up ’cause they’re looking for ideas.”
Paula Poundstone
