Nothing could be more absurd than moral lessons at such a moment! Oh, self-satisfied people: with what proud self-satisfaction such babblers are ready to utter their pronouncements! If they only knew to what degree I myself understand all the loathsomeness of my present condition, they wouldn't have the heart to teach me.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

An artist must know the realit...

An artist must know the reality he is depicting in its minutest detail. In my opinion we have only one shining example of that - Count Leo Tolstoy.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

Through error you come to the ...

Through error you come to the truth! I am a man because I err! You never reach any truth without making fourteen mistakes and very likely a hundred and fourteen.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

I know that you don't believe ...

I know that you don't believe it, but indeed, life will bring you through. You will live it down in time. What you need now is fresh air, fresh air, fresh air!

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

Anyone who can appease a man's...

Anyone who can appease a man's conscience can take his freedom away from him.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

For all is like an ocean, all ...

For all is like an ocean, all flows and connects; touch it in one place and it echoes at the other end of the world.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

When I look back on my past an...

When I look back on my past and think how much time I wasted on nothing, how much time has been lost in futilities, errors, laziness, incapacity to live; how little I appreciated it, how many times I sinned against my heart and soul-then my heart bleeds. Life is a gift, life is happiness, every minute can be an eternity of happiness.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

It is easier for a Russian to ...

It is easier for a Russian to become an Atheist, than for any other nationality in the world. And not only does a Russian 'become an Atheist,' but he actually BELIEVES IN Atheism, just as though he had found a new faith, not perceiving that he has pinned his faith to a negation. Such is our anguish of thirst!

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

Yes, that's right... love should come before logic ... Only then will man come to understand the meaning of life.

Fathers, provoke not your children to wrath.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

Ah, Misha, he has a stormy spi...

Ah, Misha, he has a stormy spirit. His mind is in bondage. He is haunted by a great, unsolved doubt. He is one of those who don't want millions, but an answer to their questions.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

if she had ordered me to throw...

if she had ordered me to throw myself down then, I would have done it! If she had said it only as a joke, said it with contempt, spitting on me--even then I would have jumped!

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

One's own free unfettered choi...

One's own free unfettered choice, one's own caprice-however wild it may be, one's own fancy worked up at times to frenzy-is that very 'most advantageous advantage' which we have overlooked, which comes under no classification and against which all systems and theories are continually being shattered to atoms... [an]will attain his object-that is, convince himself he is a man and not a piano-key!

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

The more incompetent one feels...

The more incompetent one feels, the more eager he is to fight.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

Break what must be broken, onc...

Break what must be broken, once for all, that's all, and take the suffering on oneself.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

People with new ideas, people ...

People with new ideas, people with the faintest capacity for saying something new, are extremely few in number, extraordinarily so, in fact.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

I will put up with any mockery...

I will put up with any mockery rather than pretend that I am satisfied when I am hungry.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

If God is dead, everything is ...

If God is dead, everything is allowed.

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

Totally without hope one canno...

Totally without hope one cannot live. To live without hope is to cease to live. Hell is hopelessness. It is no accident that above the entrance to Dante's hell is the inscription: 'Leave behind all hope, you who enter here.'

Fedor Dostoevsky 718 quotes

Russians alone are able to com...

Russians alone are able to combine so many opposites in themselves at one and the same time.
