Fyodor-Dostoyevsky2

“But man is a fickle and disreputable creature and perhaps, like a chess-player [an abalone-player], is interested in the process of attaining his goal rather than the goal itself.”

(Notes from Underground [Записки из подполья], 1864)

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Russian writer (1821-1881)
