Leo was born in central Russia to a family of nobility and had a long lineage of Russian ancestry. Leo was educated in Moscow for a while and then returned back to his homeland city of Yasnaya Polyana. After a brief military career he started a school for peasant children.

Leo believed that in order to change the world he needed to start with the education of its children.

If you have never heard of Leo Tolstoy there is a good chance you have heard of the book he wrote War and Peace.

Leo died of an pneumonia in November 1910.



Quite a few authors have referred to Leo Tolstoy and his books. I heard Wayne Dyer mentioned a story about Ivan Ilyich dying and wondering if his life had been lived well. These could be questions we asked ourselves at the end of our lives. Why not ask these questions now and change your life for the future.

According to Wayne Dyer this book taught him a lesson about living and dying.

Don't die with your music in you.
