Leo Tolstoy“In our fear . . . to tear ourselves away from the conditions that ruin us, merely because the future is not quite certain, we resemble the passengers of a sinking ship who, for fear of stepping into a boat which will take them to shore, retreat to their their cabins and refuse to come out; or those sheep which, out of the fire which has enveloped the whole yard, press close to their pens and do not walk through the open gate.”

–Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God Is Within You
