    "All people are like people, and he is like a monk. He is so stern. It's not according to his years."

    People with well-filled stomachs are, after all, not a few, but honest people there are none,"

    "There you have it, Pavel! It begins not in the head, but in the heart. The heart is such a place that nothing else will grow in it."

    "Yes, it hurts, but you must—you must distrust man; you must fear him, and even hate him! Man is divided, he is cut in two by life. You'd like only to love him; but how is it possible? How can you forgive a man if he goes against you like a wild beast, does not recognize that there is a living soul in you, and kicks your face—a human face! You must not forgive. It's not for yourself that you mustn't. I'd stand all the insults as far as I myself am concerned; but I don't want to show indulgence for insults. I don't want to let them learn on my back how to beat others!"

    "Oho! And pray what for?" asked the Little Russian calmly.

    "So they cease to be."

    "Ahem! And have you the right to make corpses out of living people?"

    "Yes, I have."

    "Where did you get it from?"

    "The people themselves gave it to me."

    "I know that to argue with a man at a time when all the wounds of his heart are bleeding, is only to insult him. I know it, brother."

    "There'll be more than one butchery of us up to that time, that I know!"

    She did not understand what they had been talking about, but she felt that a new misfortune was in store for her, a great and sad misfortune.
