"Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky (Russian: Фёдор Михайлович Достоевский), sometimes transliterated Dostoevsky, was a Russian novelist, journalist, and short-story writer whose psychological penetration into the human soul had a profound influence on the 20th century novel."

Einstein "Dostoevsky gives me more than any scientist, more than Gauss."

"The real 19th century prophet was Dostoevsky, not Karl Marx."
Albert Camus

"In Dostoevsky there were things unbelievable and not to be believed, but some so true they changed you as you read them; frailty and madness, wickedness and saintliness, and the insanity of gambling were there to know as you knew the landscape and the roads in turgenev"
Ernest Hemingway

"You are not Dostoevsky,' said the woman...'You never can tell...' he answered.'Dostoevsky is dead,' the woman said, a bit uncertainly.'I protest!' he said with heat, 'Dostoevsky is immortal!"
Mikhail Bulgakov

"He who gets nearer the sun is leader, the aristocrat of aristocrats, or he who, like Dostoevsky, gets nearest the moon of our non-being." - D. H. Lawrence

"Huxley says that when we read Jung's books, we feel that his intuitive understanding of the human being is as profound as Dostoevsky's."

"Dostoevsky, the only psychologist from whom I've anything to learn."
Friedrich Nietzsche
