Speransky, either because he appreciated Prince Andrey's abilities or because he thought it as well to secure his adherence, showed off his calm, impartial sagacity before Prince Andrey, and flattered him with that delicate flattery that goes hand in hand with conceit, and consists in a tacit assumption that one's companion and oneself are the only people capable of understanding all the folly of the rest of the world and the sagacity and profundity of their own ideas.Leo Tolstoy Andrey's Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: Speransky, either because he appreciated Prince Andrey's abilities or because he thought it as well

The majority of humankind does not accept this system, despite claims of worldwide support. Even with Russia's ratification, 75% of the world's CO2 is emitted by, 68% of the world's GDP is produced in, and 89% of the world's population live in countries that are not handcuffed by Kyoto's restrictions.

Like those ideologies of human hatred, it will be exposed and defeated.Andrey Illarionov Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Illarionov: The majority of humankind does not accept this system, despite claims of worldwide support.

After dinner Natasha went to the clavichord, at Prince Andrey's request, and began singing. Prince Andrey stood at the window, talking to the ladies, and listened to her. In the middle of a phrase, Prince Andrey ceased speaking, and felt suddenly a lump in his throat from tears, the possibility of which he had never dreamed of in himself. He looked at Natasha singing, and something new and blissful stirred in his soul. He was happy, and at the same time he was sad. He certainly had nothing to weep about, but he was ready to weep. For what? For his past love? For the little princess? For his lost illusions? For his hopes for the future? Yes, and no. The chief thing which made him ready to weep was a sudden, vivid sense of the fearful contrast between something infinitely great and illimitable existing in him, and something limited and material, which he himself was, and even she was. This contrast made his heart ache, and rejoiced him while she was singing.Leo Tolstoy Andrey's Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: After dinner Natasha went to the clavichord, at Prince Andrey's request, and began singing. Prince

Life was a road, and if departed from at a tangent, the longer for it. And a long road was a long life - a case where to travel was better than to arrive, the point of arrival being, after all, always the same: death.Andrey Kurkov Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Kurkov: Life was a road, and if departed from at a tangent, the longer for it.
In one of my novels I described a secret factory, hidden away in the Ural Mountains, which produced artificial meteorites.

We have received no single argument in favour of this document except political pressure. No link has been established between carbon dioxide emissions and climate change.

No
But of course, the Count also wept for himself. For despite his friendships with Marina and Andrey and Emile, despite his love for Anna, despite Sofia - that extraordinary blessing that had struck him from the blue - when Mikhail Fyodorovich Mindich died, there went the last of those who had known him as a younger man.Amor Towles Andrey's Sayings By Amor Towles: But of course, the Count also wept for himself.

Church, the spiritual power, and the executive power are working today united in a system that confronts people. This alliance or cooperation between the spiritual power and the executive power, between the church and the government, unfortunately takes away the Church's basic mission. It takes away their right to speak on moral or ethical subjects.Andrey Zvyagintsev Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Zvyagintsev: Church, the spiritual power, and the executive power are working today united in a system

When I was shooting the film I did not see the story as an everyday tale or a social one. To a great extent, the film is a mythological look on human life. This is probably what I would like the audience to keep in mind before they enter the screening room.Andrey Zvyagintsev Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Zvyagintsev: When I was shooting the film I did not see the story as an everyday
Misha had appeared chez Viktor a year before, when the zoo was giving hungry animals away to anyone able to feed them. Viktor had gone along and returned with a king penguin. Abandoned by his girlfriend the week before, he had been feeling lonely. But Misha had brought his own kind of loneliness, and the result was now two complementary lonelinesses, creating an impression more of interdependence than of amity.Andrey Kurkov Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Kurkov: Misha had appeared chez Viktor a year before, when the zoo was giving hungry animals
Most Russians don't treat the government, or those in power, as something close to them. They don't believe that they, as ordinary people, are able to change the development of things. That's why they have a very specific ironic sentiment towards power and the figures that represent it. I wanted to translate this irony into the cinematic language.Andrey Zvyagintsev Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Zvyagintsev: Most Russians don't treat the government, or those in power, as something close to them.
I wouldn't say I'm fixated on describing any kind of relationship whether it is a father and a son, or a family. I don't like it when people say that I'm particularly following the same line or that I'm only interested in family dramas. I'm interested in human relationships. The most intimate, the most delicate, and the most intriguing relationships are those within a family.Andrey Zvyagintsev Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Zvyagintsev: I wouldn't say I'm fixated on describing any kind of relationship whether it is a
Next day at the review the Tsar asked Prince Andrey where he desired to serve; and Bolkonsky ruined his chances for ever in the court world by asking to be sent to the front, instead of begging for a post in attendance on the Tsar's person.Leo Tolstoy Andrey's Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: Next day at the review the Tsar asked Prince Andrey where he desired to serve;
The past believed in dates. And everyone's life consisted of dates, giving life a rhythm and sense of gradation, as if from the eminence of a date one could look back and down, and see the past itself. A clear, comprehensible past, divided up into squares of events, lines of paths taken.Andrey Kurkov Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Kurkov: The past believed in dates. And everyone's life consisted of dates, giving life a rhythm
What is this film (Mirror) about?It is about a Man. No, not the particular man whose voice we hear from behind the screen, played by Innokentiy Smoktunovsky. It's a film about you, your father, your grandfather, about someone who will live after you and who is still "you". About a Man who lives on the earth, is a part of the earth and the earth is a part of him, about the fact that a man is answerable for his life both to the past and to the future. You have to watch this film simply, and listen to the music of Bach and the poems of Arseniy Tarkovsky; watch it as one watches the stars, or the sea, as one admires a landscape. There is no mathematical logic here, for it cannot explain what man is or what is the meaning of his life. (Sculpting in Time)Andrey Tarkovsky Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Tarkovsky: What is this film (Mirror) about?It is about a Man. No, not the particular man

We are close to a consensus that the Kyoto Protocol does huge economic, political, social and ecological damage to the Russian Federation.

He sat with his cup of tea at the kitchen table. On the window ledge beside him stood the two bottles of cherry brandy, one half empty, the other full. Romantic thoughts stirred in the silence, touching again on unwritten novels and the past. He suddenly had the sensation of being abroad, out of reach of yesterday's existence. This abroad was a place of tranquillity, a Switzerland of the soul blanketed in snows of peace, permeated with a dread of causing disturbance; where no bird sang or called, as if out of no desire to.Andrey Kurkov Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Kurkov: He sat with his cup of tea at the kitchen table. On the window ledge

I knew, starting in 10th grade, I wanted to be in theater and an actor.

Film entertains with different angles, quick moves, like a commercial. But filmmakers like [Wim] Wenders allow themselves to observe a subject for a long time without changing an angle, and allow you to do that along with them.Andrey Zvyagintsev Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Zvyagintsev: Film entertains with different angles, quick moves, like a commercial. But filmmakers like [Wim] Wenders
Bow or not? Call back or not? Recognize him or not?" our hero wondered in indescribable anguish, "or pretend that I am not myself, but somebody else strikingly like me, and look as though nothing were the matter. Simply not I, not I - and that's all," said Mr. Golyadkin, taking off his hat to Andrey Filippovitch and keeping his eyes fixed upon him. "I'm ... I'm all right," he whispered with an effort; "I'm ... quite all right. It's not I, it's not I - and that is the fact of the matter.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Andrey's Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Bow or not? Call back or not? Recognize him or not?" our hero wondered in
Your time is your life. Don't waste either of them.Andrey Sergeyev Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Sergeyev: Your time is your life. Don't waste either of them.
Sometimes it even seemed to him that this "idiot's tale" had captivated the ordinary person to a significantly greater degree than the circumstances of his or her actual life. Practically everyone Filippov knew liked to talk about what in no way affected them personally. It was as if they'd erected a fortress wall around themselves - a Great Wall of China of inexhaustible nonsense. They'd barricaded themselves in the inner courtyard of their paltry and, as it doubtless seemed to them, insignificant lives. While leaving this clumsy but inevitable self-humiliation on their conscience, Filippov nonetheless pitied those ordinary people. HeAndrey Gelasimov Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Gelasimov: Sometimes it even seemed to him that this "idiot's tale" had captivated the ordinary person
I don't think the warriors will be prosecuted. These young fantasy enthusiasts are the most exotic armed group of the Eurorevolution. They appeared in the Maidan in December, wielding wooden swords and shields, and at first brought a carnival atmosphere to the demonstrations. They distinguished themselves during confrontations with the Berkut. Later, their ranks were thinned out by snipers. Some were killed, others wounded. And the only thing that remains exotic about them is their name.Andrey Kurkov Andrey's Sayings By Andrey Kurkov: I don't think the warriors will be prosecuted. These young fantasy enthusiasts are the most

The old oak, utterly transformed, draped in a tent of sappy dark green, basked faintly, undulating in the rays of the evening sun. Of the knotted fingers, the gnarled excrecenses, the aged grief and mistrust- nothing was to be seen. Through the rough, century-old bark, where there were no twigs, leaves had burst out so sappy, so young, that is was hard to believe that the aged creature had borne them. "Yes, that is the same tree," thought Prince Andrey, and all at once there came upon him an irrational, spring feeling of joy and renewal. All the best moments of his life rose to his memory at once. Austerlitz, with that lofty sky, and the dead, reproachful face of his wife, and Pierre on the ferry, and the girl, thrilled by the beauty of the night, and that night and that moon- it all rushed at once into his mind.Leo Tolstoy Andrey's Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: The old oak, utterly transformed, draped in a tent of sappy dark green, basked faintly,
