„Спрашивать надо не с тех, кто ломался, а с тех, кто ломал.“

„Какое счастье, что память возвращает нам прошлое не для того, чтобы переделать его, а лишь затем, чтобы осмыслить, оплакать и понять. Мы в ответе за все — за каждый поступок и за каждое слово, и память предлагает нам обдумать, зачем мы жили, что мы сделали со своей жизнью, было ли у нас назначение и выполнили ли мы его.“


„I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity.“ Hope Against Hope

„The only good life is one in which there is no need for miracles.“

„And after his death - or even before it, perhaps - he lived on in camp legend as a demented old man of seventy who had once written poetry in the outside world and was therefore nicknamed The Poet. And another old man - or was it the same one? - lived in the transit camp of Vtoraya Rechka, waiting to be shipped to Kolyma, and was thought by many people to be Osip Mandelstam - which, for all I know, he may have been. That is all I have been able to find out about the last days, illness and death of Mandelstam. Others know very much less about the death of their dear ones.“ Hope Against Hope

„When a bull is being lead to the slaughter, it still hopes to break loose and trample its butchers. Other bulls have not been able to pass on the knowledge that this never happens and that from the slaughterhouse there is no way back to the herd. But in human society there is a continuous exchange of experience. I have never heard of a man who broke away and fled while being led to his execution. It is even thought to be a special form of courage if a man about to be executed refuses to be blindfolded and dies with his eyes open. But I would rather have the bull with his blind rage, the stubborn beast who doesn't weigh his chances of survival with the prudent dull-wittedness of man, and doesn't know the despicable feeling of despair.“

„On the bottom shelf M. kept the books from his childhood days: Pushkin, Lermontov, Gogol, the- they are described inand happened to have been saved by M.'s father. Most of them later perished in Kalinin when I was fleeing from the Germans. The way we have scurried to and fro in the twentieth century, trapped between Hitler and Stalin!“ Hope Against Hope
