Fyodor Dostoyevsky Quotations

-Man is unhappy because he doesn’t know he’s happy…if anyone finds out he’ll become happy at once.

-For the secret of man’s being is not only to live but to have something to live for.

-A new philosophy, a new way of life, is not given for nothing. It has to be paid dearly for and only acquired with much patience and great effort.

-The second half of a man’s life is made up of nothing but the habits he has acquired during the first half.

-Man is tormented by no greater anxiety than to find someone quickly to whom he can hand over that great gift of freedom with which the ill-fated creature is born.

-The second half of a man’s life is made up of nothing but the habits he has acquired during the first half.
