- When there was no my father, I was still young enough, I then was 16 years old. So far as concerned creation of a museum of a name of Vysotsky I constantly corrected the more mature relatives and friends of the father that in its establishment there is no necessity. Said that manuscripts do not burn, and gold does not grow dull... Has been assured that its creativity itself will find to itself road. Long enough I was at these thoughts. When was engaged in a museum did it partly unwillingly, it is more because that it was wanted very much by my mum and parents of the father. To thought that the native were right, has come much later. Time has shown that in the course of time and manuscripts perfectly burn, and gold grows dull and to keep a creative heritage of the poet, it is necessary to put considerable efforts, - Vysotsky summarised, having received an award.
