I enjoyed this, seeing as the messages can be applied today, maybe more than ever. I know a few people absolutely obsessed with their looks, and would rather let a "friend" starve than lend them a few bucks to eat. I had a falling out with a friend

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

“Anyone who can appease a man's conscience can take his freedom away from him.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Grand Inquisitor

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“And so will I here state just plainly and briefly that I accept God. But I must point out one thing: if God does exist and really created the world, as we well know, he created it according to the principles of Euclidean geometry and made the human brain capable of grasping only three dimensions of space. Yet there have been and still are mathematicians and philosophers-among them some of the most outstanding-who doubt that the whole universe or, to put it more generally, all existence was created to fit Euclidean geometry; they even dare to conceive that two parallel lines that, according to Euclid, never do meet on earth do, in fact, meet somewhere in infinity. And so my dear boy, I’ve decided that I am incapable of understanding of even that much, I cannot possibly understand about God.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The awful thing is that beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and the devil are fighting there and the battlefield is the heart of man.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“I think the devil doesn't exist, but man has created him, he has created him in his own image and likeness.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
