Shushanik Kurghinian (Armenian: Շուշանիկ Կուրղինյան) (August 18, 1876 – November 24, 1927) was an Armenian writer who became a catalyst in the development of socialist and feminist poetry.


  • Whoever is without hope, dulled, without spirit,
alone and lacking faith...
bring them to me
my spirit is free
I will give them of my soul...[1]
  • To live one must give one's all,
strength, passion, enthusiasm, the days of one's youth;
be fearless before pain, with tears restrained,
unable to smile, yet still ready to love and to care.[2]
