"What of my sins? he thought, and recalled his drunkenness, the money he had squandered on drink, the terrible way he had treated his wife, his swearing, not going to church, not keeping his fasts and all the other things which the priest rebuked him for at confession. I've sinned all right, but did I bring it on myself? It's how God made me. Oh, how I've sinned! But what can you do about it?"
- [Leo Tolstoy, Master and Man]
