Quote for the Day

Image

The phrasing all depends on which translation you are reading, but I had the following words over my desk at college to get me through those dark periods of self-doubt:

“Everything is in a man’s hands and he lets it all slip past his nose, it is from cowardice…that’s an axiom. I wonder, though what people fear most. It seems to me it is taking a new step or uttering a new sound.”

– Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment
