I am looking for the original or alternate translations of the following text

>> "I know of nothing more beautiful than the Appassionata, I could
>>hear it every day. It is marvellous, unearthly music. Every time I
>>hear these notes, I think with pride and perhaps childlike naivete,
>>that it is wonderful what man can accomplish. But I cannot listen
>>to music often, it affects my nerves. I want to say amiable
>>stupidities and stroke the heads of the people who can create such
>>beauty in a filthy hell. But today is not the time to stroke
>>people's heads; today hands descend to split skulls open, split
>>them open ruthlessly, although opposition to all violence is our
>>ultimate ideal-it is a hellishly hard task."
>>
>>Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, quoted in Maxim Gorky, Days with Lenin
