and gentlemen! We are greeting you!
Each of you is trying to achieve success or maybe
you have succeeded in life already. All day long you
hear the feverish tramping of myriad feet- all hurry
somewhere, all are indrawn in unrestrained rush, all
come exhausted, hands are shaking, knees are
trembling, hearts are beating amuck and no peace for
soul- success is still far away after all and
fortune is escaping from you.
Stop for a moment please, just catch your breath,
look at yourself, take a look at those bustling
people who stumble and fall down rushing past along
the road of life.
So perhaps happiness is a pensive face, or delicate
hand, propping up the head or maybe a pair of tender
eyes bleared by tears looking backward in the past
and showed dark in the shady time alley?
The only question is: where is that past, where is
that shady alley of time? Yes, all correct!

heaven you will realize that man merits more than
gets from life.
The river length between the exit from Zvenigorod
and Savvino- Storozhevsky monastery is very scenic.
Here you may spend a month, a year and still will
not be delighted enough in beauty of the landscape.
It is that certain place where you should dream
about the past days and faces fallen into oblivion
and about things which could happen but had not
happened, damn it!
