“…just give yourself directly to life, without reasoning; don’t worry—it will carry you straight to shore and set you on your feet…You’re not going to miss your comforts, are you, with a heart like yours?…Become a sun and everyone will see you shine” (460).

Wisdom from Crime and Punishment; spoken by Porfiry Petrovich.
