Russia will be seduced by sweet ideas, but it would survive



Alexander Blok : poet
Russia will give away it rogue beauty to some magician, that will tempt and deceive her, but she still wouldn't get lost and disappear. It would remain the same - its nature and soul. Even with some worries more - that doesn't matter.
The prediction is true cause Russian revolution was the result of seduction by sweet ideas of communism and Marx, but Russia hadn't disappeared and finally thrown this ideology off.


Alexander Blok, Russia, poem, 1908
