Leo Tolstoy Quotes: What Is The Matter With You Asked

What Is The Matter With You?" Asked Shcherbatsky.
"Nothing Much, But There Is Little To Be Happy About In This World."
"Little? You'd Better Come With Me To Paris Instead Of Going To Some Mulhausen Or Other. You'll See How Jolly It Will Be!"
"No, I Have Done With That; It Is Time For Me To Die."
"That Is A Fine Thing!" Said Shcherbatsky, Laughing. "I Am Only Just Beginning To Live."
"Yes, I Thought So Too Till Lately; But Now I Know That I Shall Soon Die."
Levin Was Saying What Of Late He Had Really Been Thinking. He Saw Death And The Apprroach Of Death In Everything; But The Work He Had Begun Interested Him All The More. After All, He Had To Live His Life Somehow, Til Death Came. Everything For Him Was Wrapped In Darkness; But Just Because Of The Darkness, Feeling His Work To Be The Only Thread To Guide Him Through The Darkness, He Seized Upon It And Clung To It With All His Might.
