Dostoyevsky: “man should always be able to bow down to something”

8 May 2013

Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky

“The one essential condition of human existence is that man should always be able to bow down to something infinitely greater. If men are deprived of the infinitely great they will not go on living and die of despair. The infinite and eternal are as essential for man as the little planet on which he dwells.”

– Fyodor Dostoyevsky
