In de Quincy's visions, an ocean of Oriental faces relentlessly bombards the consciousness in tormenting waves.
'For the moment, a flow is something, in a society, that flows from one pole to another, and that passes through a person, only to the degree that persons are interceptors.
Poka potok -- eto chto-to, chto peretekaet v obshchestve ot odnogo poliusa k drugomu, prokhodit cherez cheloveka v toi merelish, vkotoroi liudi -- perekhvatchiki potokov.'

'In Moscow, Yelena Tregubova was almost blown up by a small bomb planted outside her apartment building. Was it just hooliganism? She recently published an anti-Putin book, Tales of a Kremlin Digger. She was a member of the Kremlin press pool, but then saw the light and wrote a book about the inner life of the Kremlin that shows him in a highly unflattering light.'
(Politkovskaya A, A Russian Diary: A Journalist's Final Account of Life, Corruption, and Death in Putin's Russia, NY: Random House, (2007) p. 73)
' Istoria -- eto voobshche predel'no lichnaia shtuka*. Sugubo individual'naia. Kollektivnym* voobshchie byvaet tol'ko psikoz.
A history that's beyond the personal, one-of-a-kind*. Particularly individual. That can only be psychosis.'
(Tregubova Y, Proshchanie kremlevskogo diggera [Tales of a Kremlin Digger])
* The word, kollektivnym, does not require separate translation. The word, shtuka (personal, one-of-a-kind) is often not translated, either.
And the storm drowned the voices
Et l'orage couvrait la voix
Of horses and bawling oxen.
Des chevaux, des boeufs mugissants.
