Nesterova Russian quotes by Ilya Ilf
#1. A Spaniard and a Pole worked in the barbershop where we got our hair cut. An Italian shined our shoes. A Croat washed our car. This was America. #Quote by Ilya Ilf
Nesterova Russian quotes by Martin Schulz
#2. If we want to defeat Islamic State, we first have to arrive at a cease-fire agreement in Syria. Once that has been achieved, an anti-IS coalition can be assembled, including Russia, Saudi Arabia and Iran. That, however, will be significantly more difficult in the wake of Turkey's downing of the Russian plane. #Quote by Martin Schulz
Nesterova Russian quotes by Howard Fast
#3. I always thought that socialism here would be peculiarly American, with some reasonable, post-industrial evolution between working-class needs and market forces. It won't be bloody like the Russian Revolution. #Quote by Howard Fast
Nesterova Russian quotes by Irwin Shaw
#4. When I think of New York City, I think of all the girls, the Jewish girls, the Italian girls, the Irish, Polack, Chinese, German, Negro, Spanish, Russian girls, all on parade in the city. I don't know whether it's something special with me or whether every man in the city walks around with the same feeling inside him, but I feel as though I'm at a picnic in this city. I like to sit near the women in the theaters, the famous beauties who've taken six hours to get ready and look it. And the young girls at the football games, with the red cheeks, and when the warm weather comes, the girls in their summer dresses ... #Quote by Irwin Shaw
Nesterova Russian quotes by Richelle Mead
#5. The fact that you're unsure probably means you need food that much more," he said, which sounded like the weirdest logic I'd ever heard. "At least in my experience."
I wondered how much "experience" he had in these matters. I really didn't know what he did in his free time. Maybe there was more Russian vodka being consumed than I knew about. I always just figured when he wasn't working, he and Rose were off grappling on training mats, or whatever passed between those two as foreplay.
"You sure you don't want to go home and cuddle up with Rose?" I asked. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Nesterova Russian quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#6. The question about the Salafi is an important question as I say in Arab Awakening, and have often repeated since. I am really underlining the importance of this, because we really don't have very good memories. Remember - the Taliban in Afghanistan were not at all politicised in the beginning. They were just on about education. And then they were pushed by the Saudi and the Americans to be against the Russian colonisation, and as a result they came to be politicised. #Quote by Tariq Ramadan
Nesterova Russian quotes by A.D. Miller
#7. That's what I learned when my last Russian winter thawed. The lesson wasn't about Russia. It never is, I don't think, when a relationship ends. It isn't your lover that you learn about. You learn about yourself. #Quote by A.D. Miller
Nesterova Russian quotes by Nick Tosches
#8. At the time of the Russian emancipation, about 20 percent of the Russian population lived in serfdom. In the United States at this time, about 10 percent of the population lived in slavery. #Quote by Nick Tosches
Nesterova Russian quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#9. No jewels, save my eyes, do I own, but I have a rose which is even softer than my rosy lips. And a quiet youth said: 'There is nothing softer than your heart.' And I lowered my gaze ...
I wrote back telling Liza that her poems were bad and she ought to stop composing. Sometime later I saw her in another cafe, sitting at a long table, abloom and ablaze among a dozen young Russian poets. She kept her sapphire glance on me with a mocking and mysterious persistence. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Nesterova Russian quotes by Matija Bećković
#10. When you come to any town
And one comes to any town very late
When you come very late to any town
In case that town happens to be Valjevo
Where I also came
You'll come by the path you had to come by
Which didn't exist before you
But was born with you
For you to go by your path
And meet her whom you must meet
On the path you must go by
Who was your life
Even before you met her
Or knew that she existed
Both her and the town to which you came.
*****
Until she comes into your life
And there forever remains
She who started towards you
From a great distance
From somewhere in the Russian Jerusalem
From the Caucasus from Pyatigorsk
Where she had never been
And her name was what it was
For instance Vera Pavlodoljska
And looked the way she looked
The way no one on earth looks anymore.
*****
That will be the only town
Where you've always been
And as soon as you heard her name
And before you met her
You always knew her
And already loved her for centuries.
When you come to any town
And one comes to any town very late
When you come very late to any town
In case that town happens to be Valjevo
You will come stepping to a double echo
Yours and the clatter of another
Who travels with you
And whose voice blows in the wind
On an unusual day for that time of year
So even you won't be #Quote by Matija Bećković
Nesterova Russian quotes by Katherine Arden
#11. The glutton cannot turn his mind to God," he said dismissively. "But neither can the starving man. #Quote by Katherine Arden
Nesterova Russian quotes by Anthony Burgess
#12. Elgar is not manic enough to be Russian, not witty or pointilliste enough to be French, not harmonically simple enough to be Italian and not stodgy enough to be German. We arrive at his Englishry by pure elimination. #Quote by Anthony Burgess
Nesterova Russian quotes by Ian Fleming
#13. It was the same with the whole Russian machine. Fear was the impulse. For them it was always safer to advance than retreat. Advance against the enemy and the bullet might miss you. Retreat, evade, betray and the bullet would never miss. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Nesterova Russian quotes by Donna Tartt
#14. The walls billowed with printed fabric - yellow, green, indigo, purple - and a red hammer-and-sickle flag hung over the batik-draped mattress. It was as if a Russian cosmonaut had crashed in the jungle and fashioned himself a shelter of his nation's flag and whatever native sarongs and textiles he could find. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Nesterova Russian quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#15. Russian young people spend countless hours online downloading videos and having a very nice digital entertainment lifestyle, which does not necessarily turn them into the next Che Guevara. #Quote by Evgeny Morozov
Nesterova Russian quotes by Adolf Hitler
#16. Stalin is one of the most extraordinary figures in world history. He began as a small clerk, and he has never stopped being a clerk. Stalin owes nothing to rhetoric. He governs from his office, thanks to a bureaucracy that obeys his every nod and gesture. It's striking that Russian propaganda, in the criticisms it makes of us, always holds itself within certain limits. Stalin, that cunning Caucasian, is apparently quite ready to abandon European Russia, if he thinks that a failure to solve her problems would cause him to lose everything. Let nobody think Stalin might reconquer Europe from the Urals! It is as if I were installed in Slovakia, and could set out from there to reconquer the Reich. This is the catastrophe that will cause the loss of the Soviet Empire. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Nesterova Russian quotes by Vasily Grossman
#17. At war a Russian man puts on a white shirt. He may live in sin, but he dies like a saint. #Quote by Vasily Grossman
Nesterova Russian quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#18. I'm a Russian and all I know of Russia is what I've read. I yearn for the broad fields of golden corn and the forests of silver beech that I've read of in books and though I try and try, I can't see them with my mind's eye. I know Moscow from what I've seen of it at the cinema. I sometimes rack my brain to picture to myself a Russian village, the straggling village of log houses with their thatched roofs that you read about in Chekov, and it's no good, I know that what I see isn't that at all. I'm a Russian and I speak my native language worse than I speak English and French. When I read Tolstoi and Dostoievsky it is easier for me to read them in a translation. I'm just as much a foreigner to my own people as I am to the English and French. You who've got a home and a country, people who love you, people whose ways are your ways, whom you understand without knowing them - how can you tell what it is to belong nowhere? #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Nesterova Russian quotes by Suzanne Steele
#19. So you admit of your own free will that you chose to date the most dangerous Russian mobster on the FBI's radar?" I looked him right in the eye and said, "I think that you need to go, because as far as I am concerned, the government crossed a line when they sent you to monitor who I fuck. #Quote by Suzanne Steele
Nesterova Russian quotes by Kenneth Eade
#20. Russia had always been an anomaly. Here they were, in the center of the city that had burned down around Napoleon's army, having "traditional" Russian cuisine that had been invented by the French. #Quote by Kenneth Eade
Nesterova Russian quotes by Oleg Kalugin
#21. Indeed, the KGB's nearly total control of the Russian Orthodox Church, both at home and abroad, is one of the most sordid and little known chapters in the history of our organization. #Quote by Oleg Kalugin
Nesterova Russian quotes by Orlando Figes
#22. The link between literacy and revolutions is a well-known historical phenomenon. The three great revolutions of modern European history
the English, the French and the Russian
all took place in societies where the rate of literacy was approaching 50 per cent. Literacy had a profound effect on the peasant mind and community. It promotes abstract thought and enables the peasant to master new skills and technologies, Which in turn helps him to accept the concept of progress that fuels change in the modern world. #Quote by Orlando Figes
Nesterova Russian quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#23. My father sits at the head of a table before the carcass of an enormous American turkey. What he is ashamed of is the one act of decency I have yet encountered in all the tales of our family's past. A young boy with a dead father and a dead friend bends down before a country dog and feeds it his butter sandwich. And I know that sandwich. Because he has made it for me. Two slices of that dark, unbleached Russian bread, the kind that tastes of badly managed soil and a peasant's indifference to death. On top of it, the creamiest, deadliest of American butter, slathered in thick feta-like hunks. And on top of that cloves of garlic, the garlic that is to give me strength, that is to clear my lungs of asthmatic gunk, and make of me a real garlic-eating strong man. At a table in Leningrad, and a table in deepest Queens, New York, the ridiculous garlic crunches beneath our teeth as we sit across from each other, the garlic obliterating whatever else we have eaten, and making us one. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Nesterova Russian quotes by Andrey Kurkov
#24. I will have to pay more attention to Russian weather forecasts in future, to check that Kiev, Warsaw, Riga and Vilnius are not included in their maps. #Quote by Andrey Kurkov
Nesterova Russian quotes by William J. Clinton
#25. Putin wants to reestablish Russian greatness, not as the Cold War, but in 19th century empire terms. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Nesterova Russian quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#26. Connoisseurs of Russian beauty could have foretold with certainty that this fresh, still youthful beauty would lose its harmony by the age of thirty, would "spread"; that the face would become puffy, and that wrinkles would very soon appear upon her forehead and round the eyes; the complexion would grow coarse and red perhaps - in fact, that it was the beauty of the moment, the fleeting beauty which is so often met with in Russian women. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Nesterova Russian quotes by Suzy Menkes
#27. I was taken to my first fashion show - Nina Ricci haute couture - in Paris by the White Russian princess, down on her luck, whom I was boarding with in Paris in 1963. I was captivated by the glamour of the gilded salon, the elegant clothes, and the audience of grand ladies. #Quote by Suzy Menkes
Nesterova Russian quotes by Salman Rushdie
#28. Mo Yan is the Chinese equivalent of the Soviet Russian apparatchik writer Mikhail Sholokhov: a patsy of the regime. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Nesterova Russian quotes by Yelawolf
#29. Triple 6 Mafia and Mystikal in Atlanta was one of my first shows. I remember how sweaty and smashed up everybody was, and it was so punk rock. #Quote by Yelawolf
Nesterova Russian quotes by Maria Alyokhina
#30. When a person in a Russian prison decides to start speaking, to start speaking the truth - they start to reject oppression. #Quote by Maria Alyokhina
Nesterova Russian quotes by Rod Dreher
#31. With a few exceptions, conservative Christian political activists are as ineffective as White Russian exiles, drinking tea from samovars in their Paris drawing rooms, plotting the restoration of the monarchy. One wishes them well but knows deep down that they are not the future. #Quote by Rod Dreher
Nesterova Russian quotes by Ivan Turgenev
#32. In his funeral oration the spokesman of the most artistic and critical of European nations, Ernest Renan, hailed him as one of the greatest writers of our times: 'The Master, whose exquisite works have charmed our century, stands more than any other man as the incarnation of a whole race,' because 'a whole world lived in him and spoke through his mouth.' Not the Russian world only, we may add, but the whole Slavonic world, to which it was 'an honour to have been expressed by so great a Master. #Quote by Ivan Turgenev
Nesterova Russian quotes by Lynne Viola
#33. The peasant rebellion against collectivization was the most serious episode in popular resistance experienced by the Soviet state after the Russian Civil War. In 1930, more than two million peasants took part in 13,754 mass disturbances. In 1929 and 1930, the OGPU recorded 22,887 "terrorists acts" aimed at local officials and peasant activists, more than 1,100 murders. #Quote by Lynne Viola
Nesterova Russian quotes by Gary Govich
#34. Fear is the primary tool of the mafiya. It's how they contain their vast criminal enterprise. For the mafiya, fear is the grease in the wheel. Fear is much stronger than love | Fear lasts much longer. Love fades and is replaced by hatred and contempt. Fear lingers and brings forth other emotions such as doubt. Fear encourages procrastination and cowardice. Besides, you always hurt the ones you love. Most are too afraid to hurt the ones they fear. #Quote by Gary Govich
Nesterova Russian quotes by Mindy Nettifee
#35. The last time you came to see me
there were anchors in your eyes,
hardback books in your posture.
You were the five star general of sureness,
a crisp white tuxedo of a man.

I was fiddling with my worn coat pockets,
puffing false confidence ghosts in the cold January air.
My hands were shitty champagne flutes
brimming with cheap merlot.
I couldn't touch you without ruining you,
so I didn't touch you at all.

It's when you're on the brink of something
that you lose your balance.
You told me that once.
When I can't bring myself to say what I need to,
my heart plays Russian Roulette with my throat.
I swear I fired that night, but, nothing.

Someday, I'll show you the bullet I had for you,
after time has done the wash.
I'll take it out of the jar of missed opportunities.
We'll hold it up to the light.
You'll roll it around your mouth like a fallen tooth.
You won't forgive me exactly,
but we'll laugh about how small it is.
We'll wonder how such a little thing
could ever have meant so much. #Quote by Mindy Nettifee
