Anton Chekhov quotes

If in the first act you introduce a gun, by the third act you have to use it.

Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out.

The task of a writer is not to solve the problem but to state the problem correctly.

There is nothing more awful, insulting, and depressing than banality.

Doctors are the same as lawyers; the only difference is that lawyers merely rob you, whereas doctors rob you and kill you too.
