Leo Tolstoy

Leo Tolstoy

was a Russian writer who primarily wrote novels and short stories
It is horrible! It is not the suffering and the death of the animals that is horrible, but the fact that the man without any need for so doing crushes his lofty feeling of sympathy and mercy for living creatures and does violence to himself that he may be cruel. The first element of moral life is abstinence.More Leo Tolstoy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Reason unites us, not only with our contemporaries, but with men who lived two thousand years before us, and with those who will live after us.More Leo Tolstoy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Music is love in search of a voice.More Leo Tolstoy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One is ashamed to say how little is needed for all men to be delivered from those calamities which now oppress them; it is only needful not to lie.More Leo Tolstoy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What is now happening to the people of the East as of the West is like what happens to every individual when he passes from childhood to adolescence and from youth to manhood. He loses what had hitherto guided his life and lives without direction, not having found a new standard suitable to his age, and so he invents all sorts of occupations, cares, distractions, and stupefactions to divert his attention from the misery and senselessness of his life. Such a condition may last a long time.More Leo Tolstoy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
