Something from Anton Chekhov

‘Prudence and justice tell me there is more love for mankind in electricity and steam than in chastity and abstention from meat. War is an evil and the court system is an evil, but it doesn’t follow that I should wear bast shoes and sleep on a stove alongside the hired hand and his wife, and so on and so forth,’ from a letter to Alexei Suvorin.

I’ll likely have more to say about this in the future.  For now, it’s time to go back to resting my eyes.
