Collage 268

In the course of their long conversation... Speransky said more than once: "Among us everything that lies outside the general level of inveterate habit is considered..." or, with a smile: "But we want the wolves well-fed and the sheep safe..." or: "They cannot understand it..." And all that with an expression which said: "We, you and I, understand what they are and who we are."
