But even friendship like our heroes' Exist no more; for we've outgrown All sentiments and deem men zeroes-- Except of course ourselves alone. We all take on Napoleon's features, And millions of our fellow creatures Are nothing more to us than tools... Since feelings are for freaks and fools. Eugene, of course, had keen perceptions And on the whole despised mankind, Yet wasn't, like so many, blind; And since each rule permits exceptions, He did respect a noble few, And, cold himself, gave warmth its due.More Alexander Pushkin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you but knew the flames that burn in me which I attempt to beat down with my reason.More Alexander Pushkin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
