In my opinion it is not the writer's job to solve such problems as God, pessimism, etc; his job is merely to record who, under what conditions, said or thought what about God or pessimism. The artist is not meant to be a judge of his characters and what they say; his only job is to be an impartial witness. I heard two Russians in a muddled conversation about pessimism, a conversation that solved nothing; all I am bound to do is reproduce that conversation exactly as I heard it. Drawing conclusions is up to the jury, that is, the readers. My only job is to be talented, that is, to know how to distinguish important testimony from unimportant, to place my characters in the proper light and speak their language.

—  Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
To a chemist there is nothing impure on earth. The writer should be just as objective as the chemist; he should liberate himself from everyday subjectivity and acknowledge that manure piles play a highly respectable role in the landscape and that evil passions are every bit as much a part of life as good ones.
—  Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
Love, friendship, respect, will never unite people as much as a common hatred for something.
—  Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.
—  Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
When a lot of remedies are suggested for a disease, that means it can't be cured.
