The best quotes on War & Peace

in Quotes & Aphorisms (War & Peace)
For all the life I have desired to feel in unison to me with great masses of men, as it must be for who it takes part of a great keen crowd. Desire has been often so strong to induce me to trick myself. I have imagined myself to be liberal, now socialist, now pacifist, but in the deeper sense I've been never one or the other. Skeptical intellect, when more I would have wished that it shut up, has always murmured its doubts, it has cut me out from the easy enthusiasms of the others and it has transported me in a desolate loneliness.
