Dostoyevsky never said that, nor did he ever write that, nor did his fictional character, the extraordinarily stupid and pig-headed Ivan Karamazov, that Dostoyevsky would roll laugh in the face of anyone who ever quoted for moral advice, ever say that.

Please point to me where that so-called "quote" is from. In all the four times I've read The Borthers Karamazov, I have never seen this so-called "quote".
