Solzhenitsyn Quotes

I did not know a whole lot about Alexander Solzhenitsyn before reading his book, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. By reading his book I have been engaged with the type of person and writer he is. He truly is one of the great writers of the 21st century. Here are some quotes that qet me thinking.

"Man has set for himself the goal of conquering the world but in the
processes loses his soul."

"If one is forever cautious, can one remain a human being? "

"History has in different questions laid out some tremendous turnabouts and

"Anyone who has proclaimed violence his method inexorably must choose lying
as his principle."

"There are a lot of clear thinkers everywhere."
