Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Quote

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Wednesday, 16 June 2021, 19:00

I'm still reading the Gulag Archipelago and was researching a speech by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and came across this quote which I thought I would share: A good motto to live or write by - and never more relevant in this age of fake news and lying and corrupt politicians and media. 

“You can resolve to live your life with integrity. Let your credo be this: Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me.”
— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Nobel Lecture (1972)
