Quotes by Anton Chekhov

'I've been reading reviews of my stories for twenty-five years, and can't remember a single useful point in any of them, or the slightest good advice. The only reviewer who ever made an impression on me was Skabichevsky, who prophesied that I would die drunk in the bottom of a ditch.'

'Don't tell me the moon is shining, show me the glint of light on broken glass.'
