„Необходимость в герое возникает тогда, когда нужно что-то спасать, когда требуется своим телом затыкать какую-то прореху. Герой и героизм — это явные признаки того, что в системе происходит сбой. И когда говорят: «героическое время», это всегда означает, что время настало паршивое.“

„I pay my teachers very well, because pedagogy is the most important of all the sciences“ The Winter Queen

„He used to be a German, but he completely recovered.“ Sister Pelagia and the White Bulldog

„Yakov Mikhailovich, as we have already said, believed fervently in the power of the human intellect. There are no insoluble problems, only incompetent problem solvers.“ Pelagia and the Red Rooster

„I read somewhere that it’s called American roulette. It was invented in America, in the goldfields. You put a single shot in the cylinder, give it a twirl, and then—bang! If you’re lucky you break the bank; if not, then it’s good-bye“ The Winter Queen

„For every taxpayer, no matter who he is, establish a single tax, not too great, which is known in advance and collectable immediately from all payments, deliveries, transactions, and income. And this tribute must not exceed one tenth part, because the holy church has tested this since ancient times and learned from its own rich experience that a man will agree to pay a tenth part of his wealth, but no more, not even out of fear of our Father in Heaven. And this means that there is no point in tempting him.“ Sister Pelagia and the White Bulldog

„The double-headed eagle that serves the Russian Empire as its crest illustrates quite magnificently the entire system of government of that country, where any matter of even the slightest importance is not entrusted to a single authority but at least two“ The Turkish Gambit

„Gentlemen living after me!     Since you are reading this little letter of mine, I have already departed from you and gone on to learn the secret of death, which remains concealed from your eyes behind seven seals. I am free, while you must carry on living in torment and fear.“ The Winter Queen

„Paris. Reuters News Agency informs us that the gigantic and entirely useless structure of iron rods with which the French intend to astound visitors to the Fifteenth World Fair has finally been completed. This dangerous project is causing justified anxiety among the inhabitants of Paris. How can this interminable factory chimney be allowed to tower over Paris, dwarfing all the marvelous monuments of the capital with its ridiculous height? Experienced engineers express concern about whether such a tall and relatively slim structure, erected on a foundation only a third of its own height, is capable of withstanding the pressure of the wind.“ Special Assignments

„Thanks to Azazel a man is able to practice arts and crafts and defend his home. Thanks to Azazel woman was transformed from a submissive bearer of children into an equal human being possessing the freedom to choose—whether to be ugly or beautiful, whether to be a mother or an Amazon, to live for the sake of her family or the whole of mankind.“ The Winter Queen

„an extremely important trip … just for a week, and there's no way I can possibly refuse. I'll be as quick as I can, on my word of honor.” He was immediately ejected from her embrace and roundly abused in terms that were severe but just. He spent the night in the study, on the hard divan“ Pelagia and the Black Monk

„What a shot! Now tell me Zurov wastes his time making holes in five-kopeck pieces! From forty paces straight into the back of the head, and you have to take the poor light into account.“ The Winter Queen

„She can't go into public care,” he explained. “She'd pine away. The poor simpleton is far too used to me.” That was when Fandorin really astounded him. “I envy you,” he said, sighing. “You're a fortunate man, Tulipov. At such a young age you already have reason to respect yourself—something you can be proud of. The Lord has given you a firm center for the whole of your life.“ Special Assignments

„Be so kind as not to Frenchify. It really is a stupid habit to stick half of a French phrase into Russian speech,” Zurov said irritably, glancing around at the speaker, although he himself interpolated French expressions now and again.“ The Winter Queen

„Shocked and grieved by sudden death of Adjutant General Sobolev.’ She sobbed and blew her nose, then continued reading. “‘He will be hard for the Russian army to replace and, of course, this loss is greatly lamented by all true soldiers. It is sad to lose such useful people who are so devoted to their work. Alexander.’” Fandorin raised his eyebrows slightly—the telegram had sounded rather cold to him. “Hard to replace”? Meaning that the general could be replaced after all? “Sad”—and nothing more? “The lying in state and funeral“ The Death of Achilles

„While hope is still alive, then so is God. And you, as a nun, should know that!” Pelagia responded to this reproach with a humble bow, but still she did not relent. “And Christ, when He went to the cross, did He also hope?” she asked in a quiet voice. The bishop did not immediately appreciate the full significance of this audacious question and merely frowned. But having understood it, he raised himself up to his full height, stamped his foot, and exclaimed, “Would you make a suicide of our Savior? Get thee behind me, Satan! Begone!“ Pelagia and the Black Monk
