Dostoyevsky’s father died inmost likely of apoplexy, but it was rumored that he was murdered by his own serfs.


Three cards, and a shared anecdote. Why respect the dead then? O tema da conversa: The best definition of man is: And as to madness, a great many people were put down as mad among us last year. There is something at the bottom of every new human thought, every thought of genius, or even every earnest thought that springs up in any brain, which can never be communicated to others, even if one were to write volumes about it and were explaining one’s idea for thirty-five years; there’s something left which cannot be induced to emerge from your brain, and remains with you forever.

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky Monologues – a collection of monologues from his novels. If it has come to this down here, what can one expect on the surface? Beauty is a terrible and awful thing!

Let us strip and be naked! Ddostoevsky those who like to reflect on what happens to our consciousness after we die – Dostoyevsky gives us a lot to think about in this lovely short story.
