About Indifferent Persons

“The only one doesn’t whine who is indifferent. Indifferent people are either philosophers or petty, selfish nature. The latter you should treat negatively, and the first positively. Of course, there can be no question about those indifferent dunces for whom even burning with red-hot iron does not cause pain.”
Letter of Anton Chekhov to his brother Alexandr (Sumy, May 8, 1889)
