“He was the son of a poor peasant, but he became a leader in the realm of the human spirit. He was a serf, but he became a giant in the realm of human culture. He was self-educated, but to scholars and men of book learning he offered new, lucid and free paths. For ten years he bore the burden of Russian military servitude, but for Russia’s freedom he did more than ten victorious armies. Fate persecuted him throughout his life, but it failed to corrode his golden soul to rust, to turn his love for people to hatred and contempt, or to reduce his faith in God to faithlessness and pessimism. Fate spared him no sufferings, but neither was it niggardly in giving him joys that originated from the wholesome spring of life. Only upon his death did Fate give him the most valuable of its treasures – immortal glory and the joys which his works will again and again evoke in the hearts of millions. This is what Taras Shevchenko was and is for us Ukrainians.” Ivan Franko
