Faith is the force of life.
      - [Faith]

In vain do science and philosophy pose as the arbiters of the human mind, of which they are in fact only the servants.

      - [Religion]

Nietzsche was stupid and abnormal.
      - [Philosophers]

To evoke in oneself a feeling one has experienced, and having evoked it in oneself, then by means of movement, lines, colors, sounds, or forms expressed in words, so to transmit that feeling that others experience the same feeling--this is the activity of art.
      - [Art]

Work is the inevitable condition of human life, the true source of human welfare.

Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
      - Anna Karenina [Books (First Lines)]

Regard the society of women as a necessary unpleasantness of social life, and avoid it as much as possible.
      - Diary [Women]

Woman is more impressionable than man. Therefore in the Golden Age they were better than men. Now they are worse.
      - Diary [Women]

In the town of Vladímir lived a young merchant named Ivan Dmitritch Aksyonof. He had two shops and a house of his own.
      - Twenty-Three Tales
         (pt. 1, Tales for Children, God See the Truth, but Waits)
        [Books (First Lines)]

"Well, Prince, so Genoa and Lucca are now just family estates of the Buonapartes. But I warn you, if you don't tell me that this means war, if you still try to defend the infamies and horrors perpetrated by that Antichrist--I really believe he is Antichrist--I will have nothing more to do with you and you are no longer my friend, no longer my 'faithful slave,' as you call yourself! But how do you do? I see I have frightened you--sit down and tell me all the news."
      - War and Peace (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]
