Stepping Stones to Freedom


“Would to God may your horizon broaden every day! The people who bind themselves to systems are those who are unable to encompass the whole truth and try to catch it by the tail; a system is like the tail of truth, but truth is like a lizard; it leaves its tail in your fingers and runs away knowing full well that it will grow a new one in a twinkling.”

Reported as being said by IVAN TURGENEV to LEO TOLSTOY
at the Stepping Stones to Freedom International Conclave, St. Petersburg, Russia in 1856*


*As hinted at in “The Discoverers” by Daniel Boorstein, former Director of the United States Library of Congress and Stepping Stones Grand Master.
