Excerpt from The Story of Russia
So you see that by looking carefully at the place he lived in, She learned a great deal about him without once seeing him.
That is just what I want you to do about the Russians. Before we look at them, we will look at their house, Russia, and see what that tells us.
It is a very large house as large as all the rest of Europe put together. There is plenty of room for a large nation; even room enough, one would think, for several nations at once. Why Should not one nation go and settle down by itself in one corner, and others in other corners, and never know or care anything about each other?
For two reasons. Perhaps you live in a house in a row. If you do, it is also likely that you do not know your next-door neighbour. Yet there is only a wall between you. Why do not you meet? Because you each have all you want on your own side of the wall; all the food you want, and the books you want.
