Top 10 Best Leonid Andreyev Quotes

#10

 

Ah well, 'tis the way of the world -- births and deaths, births and deaths.

--LEONID ANDREYEV

 
#9
 

I want to be the apostle of self destruction. I want my book to affect man’s reason, his emotions, his nerves, his whole animal nature. I should like my book to make people turn pale with horror as they read it, to affect them like a drug, like a terrifying dream, to drive them mad, to make them curse and hate me but still to read me.

--LEONID ANDREYEV

 
#8
 

The loss of reason in war seems to me honorable, like the death of a sentry at his post.

--LEONID ANDREYEV

Thus will we deal with life, my little help-meet. Will we not, eh? What though it blink at us like an owl that is blinded by the sun, we will yet force it to smile.

--LEONID ANDREYEV

--LEONID ANDREYEV

See thou, whatsoever be thy name -- whether Fate, Life, or Devil! I cast thee down my gauntlet, I challenge thee to battle! Men of faint heart may bow before thy mysterious power, thy face of stone may inspire them with dread, in thy unbroken silence they may discern the birth of calamity and an impending avalanche of woe. But I am daring and strong, and I challenge thee to battle! Let us draw our swords, and join our bucklers, and rain such blows upon each other's crests as shall cause the very earth to shake again! Ha! Come forth and fight with me!

--LEONID ANDREYEV

The gods grow lonely and die when they are not recognized.

--LEONID ANDREYEV

 
#3
 

I cannot get accustomed to war; my brain refuses to understand and explain a thing that is senseless in its basis. Millions of people gather at one place and, giving their actions order and regularity, kill each other, and it hurts everybody equally, and all are unhappy -- what is it if not madness?

--LEONID ANDREYEV

 
#2
 

Wisdom and folly are equal before the face of Infinity, for Infinity knows them not.

--LEONID ANDREYEV

 
#1
 

There is no beast more cruel than man.

--LEONID ANDREYEV
