Excerpt from “My Confession” by Leo Tolstoy

“A person could only live so long as he was drunk; but the moment he sobered up, he could not help seeing that all that was only a deception, and a stupid deception at that! Really there was nothing funny and ingenious about it, but only something cruel and stupid.”

From My Confession, translated by Leo Wierner, 1905.
