Leo Tolstoy 190th Birthday



 






















 

❝ The hero of my tale, whom I love with all the power of my soul, whom I have tried to portray in all his beauty, who has been, is, and will be beautiful, is Truth.

❝ The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity.
 

❝ There can be only one permanent revolution — a moral one; 
the regeneration of the inner man. 

- Leo Tolstoy -

September 9, 1828 - November 20, 1910



Leo Tolstoy passionately opposed the death penalty. 

I Cannot Be Silent
by Tolstoy


A response to the hanging of twenty peasants who had assaulted their landowner, this essay denounces capital punishment.
