"What Men Live By"

Leo Tolstoy 1881

Dr. Christian has several collectable out of print versions of this classic and moving short story by Leo Tolstoy.  Several of these have beautiful illustrations by various well known artists.


Leo Tolstoy "What Men Live By" "The Three Lessons of God" paraphrased..


I have several collectable versions of this short story that I have found at rare book sites on the internet. The top one was published in 1970 and the lower one is a limited edition of only 150 published in 1951. Both are beautifully illustrated.


Learn, "What dwells in man".

Love has been given to men

To dwell in their hearts.


Learn, "What is not given to man".

It is not given to men

To know their own needs.


Learn, "What Men Live By".

Man does not live by care for himself

But by the love for them that is in other's hearts.



God does not wish men to live apart, and therefore he does not reveal to them what each one needs for himself; but he wishes them to live united, and therefore reveals to each of them that they are needful to each other's Happiness.

Leo Tolstoy  1828-1910
