Leo Tolstoy:

“If everyone fought only for his own convictions, there would be no wars.” (War and Peace)


“We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.” (War and Peace)


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


“I've always loved you, and when you love someone, you love the whole person, just as he or she is, and not as you would like them to be.” (Anna Karenina)


“If you look for perfection, you'll never be content.” (Anna Karenina)


"Nothing can make our life, or the lives of other people, more beautiful than perpetual kindness."
