“Alyosha stood, gazed, and suddenly he threw himself down on the earth. He did not know why he embraced it. He could not have told why he longed so irresistibly to kiss it, to kiss it all.FullSizeRender But he kissed it weeping, sobbing, and watering it with his tears, and vowed passionately to love it, to love it forever and ever. ‘Water the earth with the tears of your joy and love those tears,’ echoed in his soul. What was he weeping over? Oh! In his rapture he was weeping even over those stars, which were shining to him from the abyss of space, and he was not ashamed of that ecstasy.”                 ~The Brothers Karamozov
