Quote #7

Life had stepped into the place of theory and something quite different would work itself out in his mind. (Epilogue, 2.26)

This passage could be seen as an argument that Raskolnikov had too much education. He was so focused on ideas and theories that he confused himself right out of happiness. Adapt this sentence to use on your teacher next time you forget your homework.
