    Shortly after turning fifty, Leo Tolstoy (September 9, –Novem ) succumbed to a profound spiritual crisis. With his greatest works behind him, he found his sense of purpose dwindling as his celebrity and public acclaim billowed, sinking into a state of deep depression and melancholia despite having a large estate, good health for his age, a wife who had born him fourteen. For Tolstoy “faith was the knowledge of the meaning of human life Faith is the power of life. If a man lives he believes in something.” And he found this faith, not in the wealthy or the intellectuals, but in the poor and uneducated. The meaning given to the simple life by simple people that was the meaning Tolstoy accepted.
