Life

 

 

 

 

If you want to be happy, be.

The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity.

True life is lived when tiny changes occur.

Music is the shorthand of emotion.

All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.

There is no greatness where there is no simplicity, goodness and truth.

You will die and learn everything.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love

 

 

Leo Tolstoy advice quotes

Love is life. All, everything that I understand,
I understand only because I
love.

Leo Tolstoy

 

 

We are asleep until we fall in Love!

Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here.

We love people not so much for the good they've done us, as for the good we've done them.

You can love a person dear to you with a human love, but an enemy can only be loved with divine love.

Leo Tolstoy advice quotes

You can love a person dear to you with a human love,
but an enemy can only be loved with divine love.

Leo Tolstoy

 

 

If everyone fought for their own convictions there would be no war.

A battle is won by him who is firmly resolved to win it.


We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.
It's not given to people to judge what's right or wrong. People have eternally been mistaken and will be mistaken, and in nothing more than in what they consider right and wrong.

In the best, the friendliest and simplest relations flattery or praise is necessary, just as grease is necessary to keep wheels turning.

A Frenchman's self-assurance stems from his belief that he is mentally and physically irresistibly fascinating to both men and women. An Englishman's self-assurance is founded on his being a citizen of the best organized state in the world and on the fact that, as an Englishman, he always knows what to do, and that whatever he does as an Englishman is unquestionably correct. An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets. A Russian is self-assured simply because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe in the possibility of knowing anything fully.

Leo Tolstoy advice quotes

Leo Tolstoy

 

 

God is the same everywhere.

Life is everything. Life is God. Everything shifts and moves, and this movement is God. And while there is life, there is delight in the self-awareness of the divinity. To love life is to love God. The hardest and most blissful thing is to love this life in one's suffering, in the guiltlessness of suffering.
