"'Все должны быть познающими и всё должно быть предметом знания.' – Николай Федорович Федоров"
"'Everyone must be cognitive and everything must be the subject of knowledge.' - Nikolai Fedorovich Fedorov"

I suspect that most of you, like me, don't speak Russian. (Shoutout to @RuZcash, while we're here!) I used Google Translate, and discovered that the passage is a quote from Nikolai Fyodorovich Fyodorov, "a Russian Orthodox Christian philosopher" in the mid-1800s up to the 20th century, "who was part of the Russian cosmism movement and a precursor of transhumanism." Furthermore, "Fyodorov advocated radical life extension, physical immortality and even resurrection of the dead, using scientific methods."

Also from Wikipedia, we have a better translation of the quote than Google's:

Fyodorov thought that death and afterdeath existence should become the subject of comprehensive scientific inquiry, that achieving immortality and revival is the greatest goal of science, and that this knowledge must leave the laboratories and become the common property of all: "Everyone must be learning and everything be the subject of knowledge and action".
