Springtime in Vienna
The Cherry Orchard at St. Marx

"... everywhere I have been,
every minute, day and night,

my soul has been full
of mysterious anticipations.
I can hear the sound of its footsteps....

I feel the approach of happiness, Anya;
I see it coming ...

it is coming towards us,
nearer and nearer;

And if we do not see it,
if we do not know it,
what does it matter?
Others will see it."

"Be free, be free as the wind ... "

Quotes from the play "The Cherry Orchard" by Anton Cekhov
