„One should never direct people towards happiness, because happiness too is an idol of the market-place. One should direct them towards mutual affection. A beast gnawing at its prey can be happy too, but only human beings can feel affection for each other, and this is the highest achievement they can aspire to.“

—  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Russian writer 1918 - 2008
не к счастью устремить людей, потому что это тоже идол рынка ― "счастье"! а ко взаимному расположению. Счастлив и зверь, грызущий добычу, а взаимно расположены могут быть только люди! И это ― высшее, что доступно людям! Shulubin, in Cancer Ward (1968) Pt. 2, Ch. 10.
