Famous quotes containing the word russians:

    We Russians have assigned ourselves no other task in life but the cultivation of our own personalities, and when we’re barely past childhood, we set to work to cultivate them, those unfortunate personalities.
    Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883)

    The Russians imitate French ways, but always at a distance of fifty years.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    If the Russians have gone too far in subjecting the child and his peer group to conformity to a single set of values imposed by the adult society, perhaps we have reached the point of diminishing returns in allowing excessive autonomy and in failing to utilize the constructive potential of the peer group in developing social responsibility and consideration for others.
    Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)
