May I bring some more Russian goodness from www.gramota.ru to your attention? I love their collection of quotes from (mostly) Russian literary heavy-hitters such a Tolstoy (Толстой), Pushkin (Пушкин), and Chekhov (Чехов).
Here are a few good ones that I’ve quickly translated from Russian into English:
“One’s virtue is seen in how he treats words.”
“The word must be as tall as the thought.”
“Learning is better than reading!”
As always, any comments on the translations are welcome! Thanks!
