Savor the wisdom
Title: A Calendar of Wisdom: daily thoughts to nourish the soul
By: Leo Tolstoy
Leo Tolstoy spent 15 years researching and “collecting the wisdom of the centuries” to create his Calendar of Wisdom, which was first published in 1904. He enjoyed reading it every day until the end of his life in 1910. After the Russian Revolution, publication of the book was forbidden because of its religious nature. In 1995, Russia again allowed the book to be published and the first English translation was published in 1997.
Although I’m not quite wise enough to imbibe daily, I do enjoy dipping into his calendar for a savory taste of wisdom now and then. In fact, I enjoy this book so much that I have gifted it to a number of friends and family, including myself. I highly recommend this exquisite opus. Check it out today!
“A wise thought for every day of the year, from the greatest philosophers of all times and all people.”
