From the chapter in Laurus when Arseny visits a cathedral in Vienna:
“It makes a twofold impression, Arseny reports to Ustina from St. Stephen’s Cathedral. On the one hand, there is the sense of something kindred because we have common roots. On the other hand, I do not feel at home here: after all, our paths diverged. Our God is closer and warmer, theirs is higher and grander.”
The latest episode of Proverbial is up now and concerns Tennyson’s well-known adage, “‘Tis better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.” The episode glosses first loves, divorce, Menander, and so forth.
At present, this is my favorite episode of the show.
