CHEKHOV, ANTON

“May God guard you.”

(Koteliansky, 1965, 155)

 

“All is in the hands of God.”

(Ibid., 196)

 

“Glory be to God.”

(Ibid., 264)

 

“The gospels . . . are indeed truth.”

(Ibid., 273)

 

“I consider his (Tolstoy’s) faith to be nearest and most akin to mine.”

(Ibid., 273)

 

“Modern culture is but the beginning of a work for a great future, a work which will go on, perhaps, for ten of thousands of years, in order that mankind may, even in the remote future, come to know the truth of a real God -- that is, not by guessing, not by seeking in Dostoevsky, but by perceiving clearly, as one perceives that twice two is four.”

(Ibid., 282)
