30 Dec

To forsake family and fatherland, and forswear all endeavor to get earthly good; to form no ties, and to wander under an assumed name, in hempen rags, from place to place, doing no harm to any one, and praying for people, praying for those who persecute them, as well as for those who give them protection, – there is no truth, and no life, higher than that.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
