Don’t Lie to Yourself

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”

– Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

    • Yes, I’m currently in the middle of reading The Brothers Karamazov. I didn’t get very far the first time I tried to read and I’m glad that I put the time into it now!
