In life — with advancing age — one starts to understand the power of a person, who is constantly thinking. It is an enormous overmastering power. Everything perishes: youth, charms, passions — everything grows old and ruins. The thought doesn’t perish and beautiful is a person who bears it throughout one’s life.

(Vasily Shukshin)
