“There are seconds, they come only five or six at a time, and you suddenly feel the presence of eternal harmony, fully achieved…The feeling is clear and indisputable. As if you suddenly sense the whole of nature and suddenly say, yes, this is true…If it were longer than five seconds, the soul couldn’t endure it and would vanish. In those five seconds I live my life through, and for them I would give my whole life.”  Dostoyevsky
