"For myself, I detest the fellow, and think him a charlatan. I am certain that, in spite of his frogs, he is making no real progress in physics."
Turgenev quotes
"What is Bazarov?" Arkady smiled. "Would you like me to tell you, uncle, what he really is?"
'There was a time,' Nikolai Artemyevitch resumed, 'when daughters did not allow themselves to look down on their parents—when the parental authority forced the disobedient to tremble. That time has passed, unhappily: so at least many persons imagine; but let me tell you, there are still laws which do not permit—do not permit—in fact there are still laws. I beg you to mark that: there are still laws——'

Turgenev Ivan quotes
Bazarov drew himself up haughtily. "I don't adopt any one's ideas; I have my own."
