Today is Boris Pasternak’s Birthday

Heard a little bio on Boris Pasternak(Doctor Zhivago) on today’s Writer’s Almanac. Really liked the quote they used at the end:

Boris Pasternak said, “What is laid down, ordered, factual is never enough to embrace the whole truth: life always spills over the rim of every cup.”

One thought on “Today is Boris Pasternak’s Birthday

  1. I saw Dr. Zhivago for the first time just last month. My father went to the same school as Omar Sharif and loves the movie. I absolutely hated it! Obviously I’m not my father’s daughter. I recognised the background in quite a few of the film’s scenes since part of it was filmed in Southern Alberta.

    Hi Sarah! 🙂
    What a nice surprise to see you here! I didn’t know that movie was shot in Alberta! Wow! I better watch it again.
    Why do you hate it so much?
