And every step I take recalls how much in love we used to be.

„We kneel, how weak; we rise, how full of power!
Why, therefore, should we do ourselves this wrong,
Or others — that we are not always strong,
That we are ever overborne with care,
That we should ever weak or heartless be,
Anxious or troubled, when with us is prayer,
And joy and strength and courage are with Thee?“
— Richard Chenevix Trench Irish bishop 1807 - 1886

„I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how.“

In Russian: Я считаю, что совершенно неважно, кто и как будет в партии голосовать; но вот что чрезвычайно важно, это - кто и как будет считать голоса.
