The only thing that we know is that we know nothing and that, is the highest flight of human wisdom.
This is a quote from one of my favorite novels, War & Peace. Leo Tolstoy, is the most insightful author I’ve ever read. He ruthlessly deconstructs his characters and their actions. Their souls are laid bare for the reader to love or decry, continually in cycles, until thorough comprehension sets in and we come to know them better than we know ourselves.
Incidentally, the image above, by Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, is apparently the first color photograph taken in Russia.
