Wise Thoughts for Every Day
Leo Tolstoy fulfilled in this book the dream which he had nourished for fifteen years: to collect the wisdom of the centuries in one book in the form of daily readings published for the mass market. Since its first publication it was always present on his desk and it became his favourite book during the last five years of his life.
This first English translation of the Calendar is a real discovery. It forms the spiritual heritage of one of the world's greatest novelists and thinkers. It belongs amongst the very best creations of human genius, a classical work, but also a spiritual guide for today because its content is timeless.
