Things are not as easily understood nor as expressible as people usually would like us to believe. Most happenings are beyond expression; they exist where a word has never intruded. Even more inexpressible are works of art; mysterious entities they are, whose lives, compared to our fleeting ones, endure.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (translated by Joan Marie Burnham)

…Chekhov hated the moralising in Tolstoy’s novels; Tolstoy condemned Chekhov’s plays as worse than Shakespeare’s. But something elemental had happened by the stream at Yasnaya Polyana. Engulfed in his own last illness, Chekhov worried about Tolstoy’s health. He referred to him as that “crafty old man” but acknowledged that he never loved another as well. “While there is a Tolstoy in literature,” Chekhov said, “it is pleasant and agreeable to be a writer.”

There was a strange fixity in his gaze at times. Like all very absent-minded people he would sometimes stare at a person without seeing him. He was silent and rather awkward, but sometimes, when he was alone with anyone, he became talkative and effusive, and would laugh at anything or nothing. But his animation vanished as quickly as it appeared.
