Russian Wisdom

“We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.”

“It’s not given to people to judge what’s right or wrong. People have eternally been mistaken and will be mistaken, and in nothing more than in what they consider right and wrong.”

“If we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, then all possibility of life is destroyed.”

“Human science fragments everything in order to understand it, kills everything in order to examine it. ”

“Man cannot possess anything as long as he fears death. But to him who does not fear it, everything belongs.”

Leo Tolstoy War And Peace
