“There was no one around, neither family nor people whose judgement you respected. At such a time, you felt the need of committing yourself to something absolute — life or truth or beauty — of being ruled by it in place of the man-made rules that had been discarded. You needed to surrender to some such ultimate purpose more fully, more unreservedly than you had ever done in the old familiar, peaceful days, in the old life that was now abolished and gone for good.”
~ “Doctor Zhivago”, Pasternak.
