Tolstoy ’s axiom: “All great literature is one of two stories ; a man goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town.”
While Leo Tolstoy garnered much and earned great acclaim as a writer, this piece here won’t say much on that. The magnanimity of this quote alone tends to outweigh all great ever said and done. It takes me to good literature and to the root of it – yes, but it also takes me to travel, it takes me to an idea and the journey towards its accomplishment.
Happy 186th Leo Tolstoy!
