Leo Tolstoy: “Man Can Be Master of Nothing While He Fears Death”

Photographer Unknown, (Thoughts)

“Man can be master of nothing while he fears death, but he who does not fear it possesses all. If there were no suffering, man would not know his limitations, would not know himself. The hardest thing is to be able in your soul to unite the meaning of all. To unite all? Pierre asked himself. “No, not to unite. Thoughts cannot be united, but to harness all these thoughts together is what we need! Yes, one must harness them, must harness them!”

Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace
