Some quotes from War and Peace – a book that everyone needs to read!

“We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.”

“You can love a person dear to you with a human love, but an enemy can only be loved with divine love.”

“For if we allow that human life is always guided by reason, we destroy the premise that life is possible at all.”

“It’s not given to people to judge what’s right or wrong. People have eternally been mistaken and will be mistaken, and in nothing more than in what they consider right and wrong.”

“The only absolute knowledge attainable by man is that life is meaningless.”
