“Formerly young people were faced with having to study; they were averse to becoming known as ignoramuses; so like it or not, they worked hard. But now all they have to do is to say ‘Everything in the world is bosh!’ — and that does it. The young people rejoiced. And for good cause — up to that time they had been simply blockheads, but now they have, all of a sudden, become nihilists.”

-Ivan Turgenev, Fathers and Sons (1862)
