Fyodor Dostoyevsky // "I seem to have such strength in me now, that I think I could stand anything, any suffering, only to be able to say and to repeat to myself every moment, 'I exist'. In thousands of agonies…I exist. I'm tormented on the rack…but I exist! Though I sit alone on a pillar…I exist! I see the sun, and if I don't see the sun, I know it's there. And there's a whole life in that, in knowing that the sun is there."
