"My dear Rodya," wrote his mother — "it's two months since I last had a talk with you by letter which  has distressed me and even kept me awake at night, thinking. But I am sure you will not blame me  for my inevitable silence. You know how I love you; you are all we have to look to, Dounia and I, you  are our all, our one hope, our one stay. What a grief it was to me when I heard that you had given up  the university some months ago, for want of means to keep yourself and that you had lost your  lessons and your other work! How could I help you out of my hundred and twenty roubles a year  pension? The fifteen roubles I sent you four months ago I borrowed, as you know, on security of my  pension, from Vassily Ivanovitch Vahrushin a merchant of this town. He is a kind-hearted man and  was a friend of your father's too. But having given him the right to receive the pension, I had to wait  till the debt was paid off and that is only just done, so that I've been unable to send you anything all  this time. But now, thank God, I believe I shall be able to send you something more and in fact we  may congratulate ourselves on our good fortune now, of which I hasten to inform you. In the first

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
