>WRL: The Brothers Karamazov

>”before going to sleep, he threw himself down on his knees and prayed for a long time. In his ardent prayer, he did not ask God to explain his confusion to him, but only thirsted for joyful tenderness, the same tenderness that always visited his soul after praising and glorifying God, of which his prayer going to sleep usually consisted. This joy that visited him always drew after it a light and peaceful sleep.”

-Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov, 159
