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..."
"Gordy gave me this book by a Russian dude named Tolstoy, who wrote: 'Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.'"
Anna Karinina, by Leo Tolstoy. A captivating and powerful female character eventually captured on screen by the likes of Gretta Garbo and Vivian Leigh. Another of my favorites from the classics.
