GOGOL, NIKOLAI VASILYEVICH

     “The higher truths are, the more cautious one must be with them; otherwise they are converted into common things, and common things are not believed . . . The word must be treated honestly. It is the highest gift of God to man.”

(Zeldin, 1969, 23)

     “The Christian will show his humility before everyone, it is the first sign by which he may be recognized as a Christian.”

(Ibid., 82)

     “Leaf through the Old Testament: there you will find each of our present events, you will see more clearly than day how the present has sinned before God, and the terrible judgement of God upon it so manifestly presented that the present will shake with trembling.”

(Ibid., 86)

     “Go on your knees before God and beg His wrath and His love! Wrath against what ruins man, love for the poor soul of the man who has been ruined and who ruins himself.”

(Ibid., 88)
