“Anna Karenina” a book by Leo Tolstoy

Honestly, it’s just a random posting by me.

First time I saw that book – Anna Karenina-, it seems that it was waiting on me on it place. The second row (specifically for Foreign Literature) at my school library.

I looked on the author’s name: Leo Tolstoy.

I don’t know why, I like Russian this month. Maybe because I like the cute little Masha from Cartoon Channel on my TV cable, maybe it also influence my mind. Shortly, I decided to borrow it on that day.


I never been expected I would be such a crazy Leo Tolstoy’s fans like today. I searched his biography, all of his books, his life phase, anything. And here some quote that I really like from him.

Like what I told you on the beginning, it’s just a random post of mine. Then, ENJOY!


“Love. The reason I dislike that word is, it means too much for me, far more than I can understand.” -Leo Tolstoy from his book Anna Karenina

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” – Leo Tolstoy

“Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them”

“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.”
― Leo Tolstoy from his book Anna Karenina

“When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you’d like them to be.”

“Be bad, but at least don’t be a liar, a deceiver!”
