Friday Quick Quote: Ivan Turgenev’s ‘A Sportsman’s Sketches’

“Strange things happen on this earth: you can live a long while with someone and be on the friendliest of terms, and yet you’ll never once talk openly with him, from the depths of your soul; while with someone else you may scarcely have met, at one glance, whether you to him or he to you, just as in a confessional, you’ll blurt out the story of your life.”

― Ivan Turgenev, “Kasyan from the Beautiful Lands”, A Sportsman’s Sketches
