Inspirational Wisdom for Every Day in a Classic Daybook—"An excellent gift . . . A fine inspirational" (Midwest Book Review)
During the last years of his life, Leo Tolstoy kept one book invariably on his desk, read and reread it to his family, and recommended it to all his friends: a compendium of wise thoughts gathered over the course of a decade from his wide‑ranging readings in philosophy and religion, and from his own spiritual meditations.
Thoughtful Wisdom for Every Day comprises Tolstoy’s own most essential ideas about spirituality and what it is to live a good life. Designed to be a cycle of daily readings, this book offers thoughts and aphorisms for every day, following a succession of themes repeated each month—such as God, the soul, desire, faith, our passions, humility, inequality, evil, truth, happiness, and the blessings of love.
Comforting, challenging, and inspiring, this is a spiritual treasure trove and a book of great warmth.
