John Steinbeck
“Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.”
John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck
“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you
control it.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Leo Tolstoy
“But our idea is that the wolves should be fed and the sheep kept safe. ”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Leo Tolstoy
“Tout comprendre, c'est tout pardonner.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Leo Tolstoy
“According to the biblical tradition the absence of work -- idleness -- was a condition of the first man's state of blessedness before the Fall. The love of idleness has been preserved in fallen man, but now a heavy curse lies upon him, not only because we have to earn our bread by the sweat of our brow, but also because our sense of morality will not allow us to be both idle and at ease. Whenever we are idle a secret voice keeps telling us to feel guilty. If man could discover a state in which he could be idle and still feel useful and on the path of duty, he would have regained one aspect of that primitive state of blessedness. And there is one such state of enforced and irreproachable idleness enjoyed by an entire class of men -- the military class. It is this state of enforced and irreproachable idleness that forms the chief attraction of military service, and it always will.”
Leo Tolstoy, Война и мир
