Tolstoy’s tiger

I came across this website this morning, and in their Humour for Writers found this great quote:

Tolstoy was a great pacifist and was once lecturing on the need to be nonresistant and nonviolent towards all creatures.

Someone in the audience responded by asking what should be done if one was attacked in the woods by a tiger.

Tolstoy responded, “Do the best you can. It doesn’t happen very often.”
