Leo Tolstoy Quotes

Leo Tolstoy, born on September 9, 1828, in Russia, is revered as one of the greatest and most influential writers in literary history. Renowned for works like “War and Peace” and “Anna Karenina,” he earned Nobel Prize in Literature nominations annually from 1902 to 1906, also receiving Peace Prize nominations in 1901, 1902, and 1909. Born into aristocracy, Tolstoy’s literary acclaim began with autobiographical works and Sevastopol Sketches based on the Crimean War. His moral crisis in the 1870s led to a profound spiritual awakening, shaping his Christian anarchist and pacifist beliefs. Tolstoy’s nonviolent resistance ideas, notably in “The Kingdom of God Is Within You,” influenced figures like Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. His dedication to Georgism, seen in “Resurrection,” further showcased his impact on literature and socio-economic philosophy. Despite immense praise, he never won a Nobel Prize during his lifetime, creating a lasting controversy.
