More From Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
- "The sole substitute for an experience which we have not ourselves lived through is art and literature."
- "It would have been difficult to design a path out of communism worse than the one that has been followed."
- "Literature transmits incontrovertible condensed experience… from generation to generation. In this way literature becomes the living memory of a nation."

- "You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war."― Albert Einstein
- "Emancipation came to the colored race in America as a war measure. It was an act of military necessity. Manifestly it would have come without war, in the slower process of humanitarian reform and social enlightenment."― Wendell Willkie
- "I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken – and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived."― Margaret Mitchell
