2. "But the great artists like Michelangelo and Blake and Tolstoi--like Christ whom Blake called an artist because he had one of the most creative imaginations that ever was on earth--do not want security, egoistic or materialistic. Why, it never occurs to them. "Be not anxious for the morrow," and "which of you being anxious can add one cubit to his stature?"So they dare to be idle, i.e. not to be pressed and duty-driven all the time. They dare to love people even when they are very bad, and they dare not to try and dominate others to show them what they must do for their own good."
Author: Brenda Ueland
3. "From the child of five to myself is but a step. But from the new-born baby to the child of five is an appalling distance. —LEO TOLSTOI"
Author: Ernest Becker
4. "Charaktere sind vielleicht schon bezeichnet und beschrieben worden, seit es Lebewesen gibt, die sprechen können. Dichter haben das sehr differenziert getan; man denke an Proust, Tolstoi oder Dostojewski. Diese Autoren haben die innere Dynamik eines Charakters und seine Veränderungen unter aktuellen Einflüssen der Umwelt dargestellt. Wer ihre Bücher liest, kann verstehen, warum die beschriebenen Personen so und nicht anders gehandelt haben. Dichter haben auch beschrieben, wie Menschen zu dem werden, was sie sind. Dichter wissen vieles, was Psychoanalytiker sich mühsam erarbeiten."
Author: Karl König
5. "No novelists any good except me. Sovietski -- yah! Nastikoff -- bah! I spit me of zem all. No novelists anywhere any good except me. P. G. Wodehouse and Tolstoi not bad. Not good, but not bad. No novelists any good except me."
Author: P.G. Wodehouse
6. "Time and space are awash here.~Count Tolstoi"
Author: Robert E. Lee

'All we can see is the surface. But there's so much more we can't see beneath. I bet it's as big as the world down there, underneath the water. There could be anything down there. Things we can't even imagine. How can we understand anything if we can see so little of it?'"
