The quotes of Raskolnikov from "Сrime and punishment"

"...Pyotr Petrovitch is such a busy man that even his wedding has to be in post-haste, almost by express..."

"...And to think that this is only the first blossoming, and that the real fruits are to come!..."

"...she'd live on black bread and water, she would not sell her soul, she would not barter her moral freedom for comfort..."

"...Sonia, Sonia Marmeladov, the eternal victim so long as the world lasts..."

"When reason fails, the devil helps!"
