One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn

80 – (on Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible) It’s all so arty there’s no art left in it.

81 – Geniuses don’t adjust their interpretations to suit the taste of tyrants.

142 – The belly is a demon. It doesn’t remember how well you treated it yesterday; it’ll cry out for more tomorrow.

163 – I’m not against God, understand that. I do believe in God. But I don’t believe in paradise or in hell. Why do you take us for fools and stuff us with your paradise and hell stories? That’s what I don’t like.
