A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on earth, evil, good, justice, life, and play

To a chemist there is nothing impure on earth. The writer should be just as objective as the chemist; he should liberate himself from everyday subjectivity and acknowledge that manure piles play a highly respectable role in the landscape and that evil passions are every bit as much a part of life as good ones.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904)
