Quote of the day

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. – Leo Tolstoy who was born on this day in 1828.

He also said:

The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.

And

Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.

And:

To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can’t eat it.

And:

Joy can only be real if people look upon their life as a service and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness.

And:

The chief difference between words and deeds is that words are always intended for men for their approbation, but deeds can be done only for God.

And:

The law condemns and punishes only actions within certain definite and narrow limits; it thereby justifies, in a way, all similar actions that lie outside those limits.

And:

Faith is the sense of life, that sense by virtue of which man does not destroy himself, but continues to live on. It is the force whereby we live.

And

And all people live, Not by reason of any care they have for themselves, But by the love for them that is in other people.
