Anna Karenina- Finished


I finished Anna Karenina today.

But I won't be done thinking about it.

And I will definitely read it again.  

Here's a quote from the end of the book.

Levin realizes he's a believer, but he also realizes that hasn't changed anything, but it makes everything meaningful.

"I shall go on in the same way, losing my temper with Ivan the coachman, falling into angry discussions, expressing my opinions tactlessly; there will still be the same wall between the holy of holies of my soul and other people, even my wife; I shall still go on blaming her for my own terror, and being sorry for it; I shall still be as unable to understand with my reason why I pray, and I shall still go on praying; but my life now, whole life apart from anything that can happen to me, every minute of it is no longer meaningless, as it was before, but it has the unquestionable meaning of the goodness which I have the power to put into it."
