Yevgeny Zamyatin

was a Russian author of science fiction and political satire.
The world is kept alive only by heretics: the heretic Christ, the heretic Copernicus, the heretic Tolstoy. Our symbol of faith is heresy. (“Tomorrow”)More Yevgeny Zamyatin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To the feudal aristocracy and the aristocracy of the spirit, nobility derives from diametrically opposite sources. The glory of the feudal aristocrat is in being a link in the longest possible chain of ancestors. The glory of the aristocrat of the spirit is in having no ancestors - or having as few as possible. If an artist is his own ancestor, if he has only descendents, he enters history as a genius; if he has few ancestors, or is related to them distantly, he enters history as a talent.More Yevgeny Zamyatin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
True literature can exist only where it is created, not by diligent and trustworthy functionaries, but by madmen, hermits, heretics, dreamers, rebels, and skeptics.More Yevgeny Zamyatin quotes [07/19/2011 03:07:09]
When we remove the snowdrift piled up over Chekhov in recent years, we uncover a man profoundly agitated by social problems; a writer whose social ideals are the same as those we live by; a philosophy of the divinity of man, of fervent faith in man - the faith that moves mountains.More Yevgeny Zamyatin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have long become overgrown with calluses; we no longer hear people being killed. ("X")More Yevgeny Zamyatin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
