Fyodor Dostoyevsky Quote

Variant translation: It seems, in fact, as though the second half of a man's life is usually made up of nothing but the habits he has accumulated during the first half.

The Possessed: A Novel in Three Parts [also translated as "Demos" or "The Devils"] (ed. Macmillan, 1916), p. 1916
