  1. Beautiful words by the literary giant himself 🙂

    • Sorry for the confusion. I wasn’t sure I had approved your comment. But, of course, I do. Hopefully, you didn’t even see that being an intelligent airhead, I unclicked my approval. Tolstoy is a fascinating person. I don’t agree with all of what he stood for. But, I do believe he was well thought out and always striving for those things: simplicity, goodness and truth. Above all – truth.

  2. Really I still don’t know what was the confusion. May be I am a bigger airhead than most 🙂 As far as Tolstoy is concerned, i am more interested in his works than his persona. I know that he did lot of spiritual experimentation in the later part of his life, but whatever dilemmas he faced, his writing for sure got better.
