"Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind."
Bertrand Russell, Autobiography
"Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom."
Bertrand Russell, An outline of Intellectual Rubbish
"The secret of happiness is to face the fact that the world is horrible, horrible, horrible."
"The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt."
Bertrand Russell Thanks Georgina
