Dostoevsky: Prince Myshkin’s Quietism

“With quietism like yours one could fill a hundred years with happiness. Whether one showed you an execution or a little finger, you would extract an equally edifying thought from both of them, and would still be content. That’s the way to get on in life.”

— Feodor Dostoevsky, The Idiot
