Bertrand Russell's quotes
"It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this."
"I do not think that the real reason why people accept religion is anything to do with argumentation. They accept religion on emotional grounds. One is often told that it is a very wrong thing to attack religion, because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it."
"Freedom of opinion can only exist when the government thinks itself secure."
"Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric."
"Boredom is a vital problem for the moralist, since at least half the sins of mankind are caused by the fear of it."
"A stupid man's report of what a clever man says is never accurate because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand."
"A life without adventure is likely to be unsatisfying, but a life in which adventure is allowed to take whatever form it will is sure to be short."
