Anton Chekhov — Russian Dramatist born on January 29, 1860, died on July 14, 1904

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov was a Russian physician, playwright and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. His career as a playwright produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov practiced as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress." Along with Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theater... (wikipedia)

If you are afraid of loneliness, do not marry.
People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.
We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.
Medicine is my lawful wife and literature my mistress; when I get tired of one, I spend the night with the other.
No psychologist should pretend to understand what he does not understand... Only fools and charlatans know everything and understand nothing.
