Leo Tolstoy and His Twitts – 2

A few more phrases by the great thinker Leo Tolstoy: short, and smart, and thought-provoking:

  • I am sure that the sense of life for everyone of us is simply to grow (mature) in love. (Я уверен, что смысл жизни для каждого из нас — просто расти в любви.)
  • It is not enough to be smart to live wisely. (Недостаточно быть умным, чтобы жить умно.)
  • Thinking is the ability to deviate from instincts and realize these deviations. (Ум — способность отклоняться от инстинкта и соображать эти отклонения.)
  • Always look for the best side in people, not the worst. (Ищи в других людях всегда хорошую сторону, а не дурную.)
  • Come up with as many things to keep yourself busy as you can. (Придумывай себе как можно больше занятий.)
