ORE'S BEACH HOUSE
When I look back at the past and think of all the time I squandered in error and idleness, lacking the knowledge I needed to live; when I think of how I sinned against my heart and my soul, then my heart bleeds. Life is a gift, life is happiness … Every minute could have been an eternity of happiness! If youth only knew. Now my life will change, now I will be reborn.  Fyodor Dostoevsky, in a letter to his brother after his death sentence was converted to four years of hard labor in Siberia (via stxxz)

(via therenewal)
