random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
  As far as going to Russia was concerned, my mind was made up. After having been raised in Hungray, I had lived in Germany and in England before I settled in the United States, and that is as much migration as is good for any man. Moreover, when you are above fifty you are no longer as quick at learning languages. How many years would it take me to get a sufficient command of Russian to be able to turn a phrase and to be slightly malicious without being outright offensive? No, I did not want to go to Russia.
