The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Top 10 Best Brothers Karamazov Quotes

#10

 

If you love you are of God. All things are atoned for, all things are saved by love. If I, a sinner even as you are, am tender with you and have pity on you, how much more will God have pity upon you. Love is such a priceless treasure that you can redeem the whole world by it, and cleanse not only your own sins but the sins of others.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book II, Ch. 3

People talk sometimes of a bestial cruelty, but that's a great injustice and insult to the beasts; a beast can never be so cruel as a man, so artistically cruel. The tiger only tears and gnaws, that's all he can do. He would never think of nailing people by the ears, even if he were able to do it.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book V, Ch. 4

Believe me, that for the mass of mankind beauty is found in Sodom. Did you know that secret? The awful thing is that beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and the devil are fighting there and the battlefield is the heart of man.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book III, Ch. 3

Men reject their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and honor those they have slain.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book VI, Ch. 3

The mild serenity of age takes the place of the riotous blood of youth. I bless the rising sun each day, and, as before, my heart sings to meet it, but now I love even more its setting, its long slanting rays and the soft tender gentle memories that come with them, the dear images from the whole of my long happy life -- and over all the Divine Truth, softening, reconciling, forgiving! My life is ending, I know that well, but every day that is left me I feel how my earthly life is in touch with a new infinite, unknown, but approaching life, the nearness of which sets my soul quivering with rapture, my mind glowing and my heart weeping with joy.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book VI, Ch. 1

I think if the devil doesn't exist, but man has created him, he has created him in his own image and likeness.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book V, Ch. 3

Even there, in the mines, underground, I may find a human heart in another convict and murderer by my side, and I may make friends with him, for even there one may live and love and suffer. One may thaw and revive a frozen heart in that convict, one may wait upon him for years, and at last bring up from the dark depths a lofty soul, a feeling, suffering creature; one may bring forth an angel, create a hero! There are so many of them, hundreds of them, and we are to blame for them.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book XI, Ch. 4

 
#3
 

If they drive God from the earth, we shall shelter Him underground.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book XI, Ch. 4

Beauty is a terrible and awful thing! It is terrible because it has not been fathomed, for God sets us nothing but riddles. Here the boundaries meet and all contradictions exist side by side.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book III, Ch. 3

 
#1
 

It's the great mystery of human life that old grief passes gradually into quiet tender joy.

--FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov, Book VI, Ch. 1
