Here is the putative epigraph:
1 I believe that the future will be merciful to us all. Revolutionist and reactionary, victim and executioner, betrayer and betrayed, they shall all be pitied together when the light breaks on our black sky at last. Pitied and forgotten; for without that there can be no union and no love.
Natalia Haldin, in Under Western Eyes,
2 “Do you, Natalia Victorovna, believe in the duty of revenge?”
“Listen, Kirylo Sidorovitch. I believe that the future will be merciful to us all.”
Under Western Eyes
Out of #1 you can make cuts, etc.
