Alexander Solzhenitsyn - "A World Split Apart"

Alexander Solzhenitsyn RIP (1918-2008)
If the world has not come to its end, it has approached a major turn in history, equal in importance to the turn from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. It will exact from us a spiritual upsurge, we shall have to rise to a new height of vision, to a new level of life where our physical nature will not be cursed as in the Middle Ages, but, even more importantly, our spiritual being will not be trampled upon as in the Modern era.

From A World Split Apart (1978)

Though I'm not the fan I used to be, he lived an extraordinary life and had some great things to say.
