Ivan Turgenev Quote
“A nihilist is a man who does not bow down before any authority, who does not take any principle on faith, whatever reverence that principle may be enshrined in.”
Fathers and Sons Chapter 5 (1862) (translated by Constance Garnett)
Andrei Kolosov (1864). Variant translation: "The word 'tomorrow' was invented for irresolute people, and for children."
