Comment from Arkady Dolgoruky

"What a fascinating thought! No, the secret awareness of power is unbearably more enjoyable than manifest domination. If I were worth a hundred million, I think I'd precisely enjoy going around in my old clothes, so as to be taken for the measliest of men, who all but begs for alms, and be pushed around and despised; for me, the consciousness alone would be enough!"
Arkady Dolgoruky

Dostoevsky,
A Raw Youth/The Adolescent/An Accidental Family
