Yevtushenko, Yevgeny

  • A poet's autobiography is his poetry. Anything else is just a footnote.

  • In any man who dies there dies with him his first snow and kiss and fight. Not people die but worlds die in them.

  • In my blood there is Jewish blood. In their callous rage, all anti-Semites must hate me now as a Jew. For that reason I am a true Russian Jew.
