More From Bertrand Russell
- "Next to enjoying ourselves, the next greatest pleasure consists in preventing others from enjoying themselves, or, more generally, in the acquisition of power."
- "There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less."
- "Freedom comes only to those who no longer ask of life that it shall yield them any of those personal goods that are subject to the mutations of time."
More In Work
- "Mr. Obama still has time to reverse course. A great deal depends on it. To fail on health care yet again might well be the ‘Waterloo’ Republicans dream of."― Thomas Frank
- "Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions – Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead."― Chanakya
- "Any man today who returns from work, sinks into a chair, and calls for his pipe is a man with an appetite for danger."― Bill Cosby
