More From Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
- "You only have power over people so long as you don’t take everything away from them. But when you’ve robbed a man of everything, he’s no longer in your power – he’s free again."
- "I can say without affectation that I belong to the Russian convict world no less than I do to Russian literature. I got my education there, and it will last forever."
