Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Leo Tolstoy
“There are no conditions to which a person cannot grow accustomed, especially if he sees that everyone around him lives in the same way.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Leo Tolstoy
“He looked at her as a man looks at a faded flower he has gathered, with difficulty recognizing in it the beauty for which he picked and ruined it. And in spite of this he felt that then, when his love was stronger, he could, if he had greatly wished it, have torn that love out of his heart; but now when as at that moment it seemed to him he felt no love for her, he knew that what bound him to her could not be broken.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

“God forgive me everything!’ she said, feeling the impossibility of struggling...”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Leo Tolstoy
“And not only the pride of intellect, but the stupidity of intellect. And, above all, the dishonesty, yes, the dishonesty of intellect. Yes, indeed, the dishonesty and trickery of intellect.”
