      André Gide se octl v úplných rozpacích, když všude pozoroval přímo nestvůrný kult Stalina. [] Stalin, krutovládce z Kavkazu nad Rusí, jest spíše symbolem, než skutečnou osobou, symbolem, jemuž náleží stejná úcta jako ikoně.
      André Gide felt completely confused when he saw the really monstrous cult of Stalin everywhere. [] Stalin, the tyrant from the Caucasus, which towers above Russia, is more a symbol than a real person, symbol to whom the same reverence belongs as to an icon.
