Man Is A Mystery. It Must Be Unraveled... : A Collection of Dostoyevsky's Thoughts on the Human Condition, from Anger to Youth
"Let me tell you, dear heart, it can happen that you go through life without knowing under your very nose there is a book in which your life is described in the minutest detail. What you have never even noticed before, you gradually remember, as you start reading such a book, and find out and discover... some books you read and read and you can't make head or tail of them, however much you try. It is so damn clever that you can't understand a word of it... But you read a book like that and feel as though you had written it yourself, just as though - how shall I put it? - as though you had taken possession of your own heart - whatever it might be - had turned it inside out for people to see, and described it all in detail - that's how it is! And how simple it is, good Lord! Why, I could have written it myself! Why, indeed, shouldn't I have written it myself!"
