Famous quotes containing the word russia:

    In my opinion it is harmful to place important things in the hands of philanthropy, which in Russia is marked by a chance character. Nor should important matters depend on leftovers, which are never there. I would prefer that the government treasury take care of it.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
