Famous quotes containing the word solzhenitsyn:
“I am of course confident that I will fulfil my tasks as a writer in all circumstancesfrom my grave even more successfully and more irrefutably than in my lifetime. No one can bar the road to truth, and to advance its cause I am prepared to accept even death. But may it be that repeated lessons will finally teach us not to stop the writers pen during his lifetime? At no time has this ennobled our history.”
—Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)
