Quotes by Dostoevsky:
– The greatest happiness is to know the source of unhappiness.
– The cleverest of all, in my opinion, is the man who calls himself a fool at least once a month.
– If there is no God, everything is permitted.
– Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.
– Beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and devil are fighting there, and the battlefield is the heart of man.

– A real gentleman, even if he loses everything he owns, must show no emotion. Money must be so far beneath a gentleman that it is hardly worth troubling about.
– Happiness does not lie in happiness, but in the achievement of it.
– One can know a man from his laugh, and if you like a man’s laugh before you know anything of him, you may confidently say that he is a good man.
– Power is given only to those who dare to lower themselves and pick it up. Only one thing matters, one thing; to be able to dare!
