“he cried suddenly, in a frenzy—«accept one's lot humbly as it is, once for all and stifle everything in oneself, giving up all claim to activity, life and love!»
«Do you understand, sir, do you understand what it means when you have absolutely nowhere to turn?» Marmeladov's question came suddenly into his mind, «for every man must have somewhere to turn….»
He gave a sudden start; another thought, that he had had yesterday, slipped back into his mind. But he did not start at the thought recurring to him, for he knew, he had felt beforehand, that it must come back, he was expecting it; besides it was not only yesterday's thought.” source
