On this day in 1860, Anton Chekhov was born in Taganrog, southern Russia.
In honor of his birthday, today, on our Twitter feed (as well as one we have called DailyChekhov), we'll be sharing a trenchant quote by Anton Pavlovich every day at 9:05 Eastern time (like the one for this coming Sunday: "A nice man would feel ashamed even before a dog."). Subscribe to the Twitter feed, or just pop over to our site and you can read the latest quotes on our Twitter stream.
Meanwhile, we share a few Chekhovian items from our archives.
Russian Life is a publication of a 30-year-young, award-winning publishing house that creates a bimonthly magazine, books, maps, and other products for Russophiles the world over.
