A wise thought for every day of the year, from the great philosophers of all times and all people
A Calendar of Wisdom is a collection of insights and wisdom compiled by Leo Tolstoy between 1903 and 1910.
Tolstoy put an enormous amount of effort into this collection over a period of 15 years. He carefully selected the contributors and they cover a wide range of philosophical views. Tolstoy grouped the thoughts according to a topic for each day of the year, and he added his own thoughts to each daily entry.
Tolstoy: "I hope that the readers of this book may experience the same benevolent and elevating feeling which I have experienced when I was working on its creation, and which I experience again and again when I reread it every day, working on the enlargement and improvement of the previous edition"
