Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn - 1918-2008

There have been many words written this past week on the passing of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

This post, succinct and powerful, is my favorite to date.

For background on this remarkable life, see the Wikipedia entry for him.

“Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either—but right through every human heart.” —Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
