The Brothers Karamazov
Our side-splitting, outrageously funny book on sale at - Amazon. In most cases, people, even the most vicious, are much more naive and simple-minded than we assume them to be. And this is true of ourselves too. A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices.

Here, Zosima explores the important concept that the path to virtue is through honesty with oneself. A man who lies to himself, he says, is unable to perceive the truth around him. Because his surroundings make him suspicious, and because he cannot believe in anything—not God, not other people—he ceases to respect or to love mankind and thus falls into sin. Later, the novel suggests that the path to redemption lies in honest self-knowledge, which can best be attained through suffering. The Brothers Karamazov by: Fyodor Dostoevsky.
