More From Bertrand Russell
- "The theoretical understanding of the world, which is the aim of philosophy, is not a matter of great practical importance to animals, or to savages, or even to most civilised men."
- "Admiration of the proletariat, like that of dams, power stations, and aeroplanes, is part of the ideology of the machine age."
- "Man needs, for his happiness, not only the enjoyment of this or that, but hope and enterprise and change."
