SONYA: What do we do? We must live out existence. Yes, we shall live, Dad Vanya. We shall live all through the endless retraite of times ahead of all of us, and throughout the long nights. We shall keep patiently the burdens that fate imposes on us. We shall job without rest for others, both now so when we are aged. And when each of our final hour comes, we shall meet this humbly, and there past the burial plot, we shall admit we have noted suffering and tears, which our life was bitter. And God will certainly pity us. Ah, then simply, dear, special Uncle, we shall enter over a bright and beautiful lifestyle. We shall delight and look backside upon our grief in this article. A tender laugh and we shall rest. I have faith, Uncle, fervent, passionate faith. We shall rest. We need to rest. We shall hear the angels. We need to see bliss shining just like a jewel. We shall see wicked and all each of our pain vanish in the wonderful pity that shall enfold the world. Our life will be as peaceful and gentle and sweet like a caress. I have faith, I possess faith. My own poor, poor Uncle Vanya, you are crying! You have never well-known what it is to be happy, but wait, Uncle Vanya, wait! We need to rest. We shall rest. We need to rest.

VOINITSKY: The Professor as always sits in the library from morning until night
Straining our brain, wrinkling our brow
All of us write, publish, write
Or perhaps hope of praise in the foreseeable future or at this point.
Unfortunate newspaper! He need to write his autobiography, he would make an extremely excellent subject matter for a publication! Just consider, the life of your retired teacher, as stale as a piece of old loaf of bread, racked with gout, severe headaches and rheumatism, his lean meats bursting with envy and envy, living around the estate of his initially wife, even though he hates it, as they can\t afford to live in area. He is everlastingly whining about his hard fate, even though, as a matter of fact, he could be unusually lucky. He is the child of a common deacon and has accomplished the professor\s chair, is among the most son-in-law of the senator, is known as your Excellency, but let alone! I\ll let you know something, this individual has been talking about art for twenty-five years, and this individual doesn\t understand the very first thing about this. For 25 years this individual has been hashing over the thoughts of other men on realism, naturalism, and all such nonsense, pertaining to twenty-five years he has become reading and writing points long recognized to clever guys and boring to silly ones, pertaining to twenty-five years he continues to be pouring normal water from one empty tumbler into another. But consider the man\s selfishness and pretensions! He has become pensioned away. No living soul offers ever heard of him. He’s totally unfamiliar. That means for twenty-five years he have been sailing beneath false colours. But look at him! This individual stalks across the earth just like a demi-god! I actually admit, I am jealous of him. Look at the achievement he has had with ladies! Don Juan him self was not more lucky. His first wife, my sis, was gorgeous, gentle, since pure as the green heaven above, noble, great-hearted, with more fans than this individual has pupils, and she loved him as just creatures of angelic purity can love those who are since pure and beautiful as they are themselves. His mother-in-law, my personal mother, savors him today, and this individual still encourages her using a kind of worshipped awe. His second wife is, as you see, a fantastic beauty, she married him in his retirement years and surrendered to him all the beauty of her beauty and freedom. What for? This sort of loyalty is definitely false and unnatural, root and department. It sounds well, but there is absolutely no logic to it. It can be immoral for any woman to deceive an old husband whom she hates. But for her to contrain her horrible youth and intense longings within herthat is certainly not immoral?!
