Fyodor Dostoevsky quote: “They sang…

Fyodor Dostoevsky Quote:

“They sang the praises of nature, of the sea, of the woods. They liked making songs about one another, and praised each other like children; they were the simplest songs, but they sprang from their hearts and went to one’s heart. And not only in their songs but in all their lives they seemed to do nothing but admire one another. It was like being in love with each other, but an all-embracing, universal feeling.

Black and white photograph of Fyodor Dostoevsky sitting next to a classical column. Fyodor, with a stern expression, is looking directly at the camera. He has a full beard and is wearing a dark, formal 19th-century suit with a bow tie. His left arm is resting on the column's base and his right leg is crossed over his right knee.
Fyodor Dostoevsky, 1861
