    The Three Questions [Based on a story by Leo Tolstoy], Jon J. Muth. My go-to children's book gift.

  • Great Quotes

    This is another #book for young readers but definitely worth a read at any age. It is based on a Tolstoy story and addresses the three questions “When is the best time to do things?” “Who is the most important?” and “What is the right thing to do?” It is a delightfully illustrated picture book, perfect for children, but can act as a great reminder to ourselves about the important things in #life too. #Inspirational? You bet!

    I love this book! I read it to my husband at our Wedding in front of all out guests. It beautifully wraps the concept of doing 'good' for those around you, into a exquisitely illustrated package.

【愛是不能用語言完全表達的,只能用生活的全部來表達它。】 列夫·尼古拉耶維奇·托爾斯泰(俄語:Лев Николаевич Толстой,1828年9月9日—1910年11月20日,俄國小說家、評論家、劇作家和哲學家,同時也是非暴力的基督教無政府主義者和教育改革家。

Another novel I was assigned in college. I can remember reading the ending of Tolstoy's classic and not knowing what to do at the end of the last chapter. My Anna was dead. I felt as if I needed to go into mourning. This is one of the most emotionally draining novels I've ever read, but one that I'm drawn to over an over again.

Leo Tolstoy "You are a soldier...you have been brought to 'pacify'...it has been instilled in you that you are not responsible for the consequences of your shots. But you know that the man who falls bleeding from your shot is killed by you and by no one else..."

Haven't read it yet but I do love Tolstoy and the theme of this book is right up my alley.
