WISDOM QUOTES FROM : Leo Tolstoy (on love, on life, on happiness, on God)


 Leo Tolstoy’s Wisdom Quotes:


On Love:

“Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source”.

“Respect was invented to cover the empty place where love should be”.

On Life:

“Without knowing what I am and why I am here, life is impossible.”

“True life is lived when tiny changes occur.”

“The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity.”

“For if we allow that human life is always guided by reason, we destroy the premise that life is possible at all.”
(From: War and Peace)

“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.”
(From: War and Peace)


On Happiness:

“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between Man and Nature shall not be broken”.

“Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them”

“He soon felt that the realization of his desire had given him only a grain of the mountain of happiness he had expected. It showed him the eternal error people make in imagining that happiness is the realization of desires.”

On God:

“The Kingdom of God is Within You”
