Countless as the sands of the sea are human passions.

Nikolai Gogol

Nikolay Vasilievich Gogol (1809 - 1852) was a Russian dramatist, novelist and short-story writer, whose satirical works on Russian life in general, and political corruption in particular eventually led to his exile. His best works, including 'Dead Souls' and 'The Nose', make him one of the funniest, yet profound, writers in literature.
