Quote for Today: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Because I'm a Karamazov. Because when I fall into the abyss, I go straight into it, head down and heels up, and I'm even pleased that I'm falling in just such a humiliating position, and for me I find it beautiful. ―Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov Witold Pruszkowski, Falling Star, 1884    

Quote for Today: Jack Gilbert

  We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure, but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world. To make injustice the only measure of our attention is to praise the Devil. ―Jack Gilbert, Refusing Heaven Public Domain Image via PxHere
