For what is a spring flower
But a reminder of death?
O! Wretched he whose mind is illumined by books!
O! Would that I had been born less perspicacious!
(For example The Brothers Karamazov, which I have read if you want to borrow.)
I feel so much like Ivan (Karamazov, from the Brothers, if you want I have a copy I've already read).
