Leo Tolstoy
· The Circle of Reading
Translated by Dmitry Fadeyev

Index of Themes & Sources

Use the below links to navigate the book by the day's theme or quotation source. The source text does not provide a theme heading for each day, so the theme categorization below is my own rather than Tolstoy's. Please also note that Tolstoy does not cite many of his quotations (as he mentions in his Preface), so the index of sources below is not comprehensive.
