A quote by Leo Tolstoy (Lev Nikolayevitch Tolstoy, 1828-1910), Russian writer, philosopher and social activist.
Everyone thinks of changing the world,
but no one thinks of changing himself.
Tolstoy was a major influence in developments of Christian anarchism, non-violent resistance movements such as those of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., James Bevel, and the political strategies of Nelson Mandela.
His most well-known books are Anna Karenina, War and Peace, The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Resurrection, and The Kingdom of God Is Within You.
