Isaiah Berlin, Flourishing. Letters 1928—1946, Chatto & Windus, London, 2004, s. 109.

Brev från Berlins resa i Palestina, 8 december 1934.

I enjoyed talking to the ex-social democrats from Russia a very great deal. They are the old 1848 idealist type of person who somehow do work the land by day & read poetry by night without making it seem impossibly arty and affected. I liked them better than I’ve ever liked any body of men tho’ I couldn’t live among them, they are to noble, simple, & oppressively good. But visiting them is delightful.
