Quotes by Alexander Solzhenitsyn

A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.

Do not pursue what is illusory - property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade and can be confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life - don't be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn after happiness; it is after all, all the same: the bitter doesn't last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing.

If one is forever cautious, can one remain a human being?

Can a man who's warm understand one who's freezing?
