But with a stranger’s curiosity,

Captivated by each novelty,
I watched how the sleds skimmed,
And listened to my native tongue. 

 

                 — Anna Akhamatova

And soon all of us will sleep under the earth, we who never let each other sleep above it.
                                                                                                                                                    ― Marina Tsvetaeva

Don’t be overwise; fling yourself straight into life, without deliberation; don’t be afraid—the flood will bear you to the bank and set you safe on your feet again.
                                                                                                                                                              — Fyodor Dostoyevsky

 

 

Death's an old story, but new for each person.
                                                                                                                      — Ivan Turgenev
