Perspectives and Aspirations

Ivan Turgenev.jpg

“The confined space I occupy is so minute when compared with the rest of the universe, where I am not and have no business to be; and the fraction of time I shall live is so infinitesimal when contrasted with eternity, in which I have never been and never shall be . . . And yet here, in this atom of myself, in this mathematical point, blood circulates, the brain is active, aspiring to something too . . .”        

–Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (Russian Writer, 1818-1883)   

“Fathers and Sons (Oxford World’s Classics)” (Ivan Turgenev)
