Currently, I am reading a book titled "The Hedgehog and the Fox" by Isaiah Berlin; actually I have been reading it for a while, although it's a very short book. The book is really interesting and I can talk about it in one of my later posts, but today I'll just mention one sentence that I came across on page 47. It describes Leo Tolstoy's views about human suffering: " suffers much because he seeks too much, is foolishly ambitious and grotesquely over-estimates his capacities."
