People speak sometimes about the "bestial" cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel. - Fyodor Dostoyevsky (The Brothers Karamazov Quotes)

People speak sometimes about the “bestial” cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.[В самом деле, выражаются иногда про “зверскую” жестокость человека, но это страшно несправедливо и обидно для зверей: зверь никогда не может быть так жесток как человек, так артистически, так художественно жесток.]
