Help identifying a quote?





I need to know if the quote "Money, like vodka, turns a person into an eccentric." By Anton Chekhov comes from one of his stories or not. I have to do an essay on it but it can't be a quote from one of his stories so it's really hard for me to know if it is or not :) Please and thank you

    English translations of Chekhov’s works are not precisely the same. The line about which you ask (i.e., “Money, like vodka, turns a person into an eccentric.”) has been translated by others as, “Money, like vodka, can play queer tricks with a man.”IN ANY EVENT, THE QUOTE IS TAKEN FROM CHEKHOV’S STORY, “GOOSEBERRIES.”Please see: [external link] … ["The House with the Mezzanine and other Stories, by Anton [C]hekoff” translated by S. S. Koteliansky and Gilbert Cannan. Charles Scribner’s Sons. 1917. Print. at Paragraph 27.] and [external link] …and [external link] … Good luck!
