Can they solve the problem of the nagging unanswerable question of justification and vocation? Their principle is the traditional one of classical mysticism: by “experiences” (“kicks”) to transcend the nagged and nagging self altogether and get out of one’s skin, to where no questions are asked nor is there any articulate speech to ask them in.
Every humane and patriotic heart must grieve to see a bloody and causeless rebellion, costing thousands of human lives and millions of treasure.

It is natural that people do not want to be involved with us too much. There is no problem down to the smallest egotistical longing which the Gestapo cannot solve.

We should recognize that schools will never solve the bedrock problems of education because the problems are problems of families, of cultural pressures that the schools reflect and thus cannot really remedy.David Guterson, "When Schools Fail Children: An English Teacher Educates His Kids at Home", Harper's Magazine (November 1990)
I regard the people as a great being, inspired by a single idea. This is my problem. I strove to solve it in this opera.MS dedication to Boris Godunov, January 21, 1874.
