Vasily Grossman Quotes

"He had lived without her before. He could get over it! In a year or so hed be able to walk straight past her without his heart so much as missing a beat. He needed her as much as a drunk needs a cork! But he understood all too quickly how vain these thoughts were. How can you tear something out of your heart? Your heart isnt made out of paper and your life isnt written down in ink. You cant erase the imprint of years."

Quotes About Famous Boldness

"It is the noble races that have left behind them the concept barbarian wherever they have gone; even their highest culture betrays a consciousness of it and even a pride in it (for example, when Pericles says to the Athenians in his famous funeral oration our boldness has gained access to every land and sea, everywhere raising imperishable monuments to its goodness and wickedness"). This boldness of noble races, mad, absurd, and sudden in its expression, the incalculability, even incredibility of their undertakings—Pericles specially commends the rhathymia of the Athenians—their indifference to and contempt for security, body, life, comfort, their hair-raising cheerfulness and profound joy in all destruction, in all the voluptuousness of victory and cruelty—all this came together, in the minds of those who suffered from it, in the image of the barbarian, the evil enemy, perhaps as the Goths, the Vandals." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
